The good news? Childhood obesity can be prevented. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for kids to eat healthier and get more active.
The good news is that childhood obesity can be prevented. In honor of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, Borrego Health encourages your family to make healthy changes together.
+ Get active outside: Walk around the neighborhood, go on a bike ride, or play basketball at the park.
+ Limit screen time: Keep screen time (time spent on the computer, watching TV, or playing video games) to 2 hours or less a day.
+ Make healthy meals: Buy and serve more vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain foods.
Eating fruits and vegetables has many health benefits. People who eat a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables can help lower their risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer. Eating healthy can also help prevent obesity and high blood pressure.
However, many people don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables.
+ Fewer than 1 in 7 adults eat the recommended amount of fruits every day.
+ Fewer than 1 in 10 adults eat the recommended amount of vegetables every day.
The good news? Communities, health professionals, businesses, and families can work together to encourage people to eat more fruits and vegetables.
