PSA: September is Childhood Obesity Month

      No Comments on PSA: September is Childhood Obesity Month

Childhood obesity affects one in every three child in the United States (CDC, 2012). This is an epidemic that is negatively affecting so many children, and we need to take action.

That is why September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. Here are three things you can do with your children right now to educate them about obesity and a healthy lifestyle:

Play! – is a great resource to know how much physical activity your child should do per day. Playing actively with your child is also a great bonding opportunity you will remember for life!

Teach Nutrition – has great resources for teaching your children about nutrition.

Eat Healthy – After you learn about nutrition, follow through! Mom Made Foods is a great resource of quick, healthy frozen foods for your children. You can also have a salad-making night where the family puts their favorite ingredients together! The options are endless.

Find Mom Made Foods at a Kroger near you!
