Caring about Children and Weight was created to address the needs of overweight children and find solutions to the problem across the country. The scope for the project was huge and has enabled the information to be made available online via this website.
Through this website we hope to bring the problems of childhood obesity to a wider audience in the hope that raised awareness of the issues involved will help in some way to reduce and prevent the problem. This can be achieved in part by creating a more healthy environment for all children and their families.
Better education, the thoughtful development of policies and environmental changes in local communities as well as on a larger, nationwide scale is necessary to bring about a positive change. At both local and county-wide aspects, efforts need to be coordinated and initiated for the prevention and reduction of childhood obesity to become a reality.
We have identified several areas in which positive initiatives can make a big difference in the incidence rate of overweight children.
It is helpful to establish active work groups in every local community to develop and apply best practices for maintaining better health. These groups can then leverage the resources available in order to shape a more healthy and brighter future for our children.
Everybody deserves a decent shot for health. By educating and enlightening parents and school teachers and the children themselves to better, healthier and more nutritious ways of eating and drinking and greater awareness of diet with health overall, great improvements can be made.
There is much to be said for maintaining healthy life diets for the long term benefits they can provide. by making a healthy diet choice every time you are about to eat anything, you empower yourself to move toward a healthier body and a better physical figure.
The problems of childhood obesity and overweight children is something that is not going away anytime soon. This is as long as environmental pressures on parents to buy cheaply produced processed meals without sufficient education as to their impact remain. It doesn't have to be this way.
The way forward is in maintaining a healthier house in terms of what children are eating and drinking and the way in which they are educated to view and understand nutrition. This website will continue to provide information in that area as well as options and alternatives that can be considered and put into practice where appropriate.
