Check out my infographic about what schools can do or are doing to fight childhood obesity.

Are you a parent concern that your child is overweight or obese? Do you have any questions about what your child’s school is doing to promote healthy eating and lifestyle?

As a parent you can do a lot to help your child at home, a topic I will discuss on my next blog.  However, it seems a mystery to most of us what happens at school.

Our children consume one or two meals and several snacks in the six plus hours they spend at school daily.  Encouraging healthy eating and exercise activity during that time is important.  Exercise helps with attention, weight control, regulates hunger, and overall feeling of well-being.

You can team up with your school to help your child be healthier.  Find out what your school is doing.  Make sure you communicate your concerns to the school principal, food service director, nurse, and health or gym teacher and ask them how they can help your child have a healthier lifestyle.

My infographic on Fighting Obesity at Schools will show you how schools can or are addressing obesity and are promoting healthy eating and lifestyle.  Feel free to print it and take it with you to discuss with the school staff to find out what they are doing.
