Talking about our weight

My son likes to tap on my fitbit. He likes to see how many dots I have and (after I explained what the dots are measuring) he encourages me to move around more to get all my dots for the day.

Most parents admit that they are uncomfortable talking with their children about…

The influence of siblings on your weight

My son is relatively fit. He gets plenty of fresh air and exercise (way more than I do), and he likes to show me his "big muscles." As parents, we are trying to reinforce the idea of staying healthy. We are slowly winning him over - not to the point of eating vegetables - but our son definitely requests that we run around outside, go swimming, ride bikes and do other activities that are really active.…

Want to fight childhood obesity? Start earlier than you think

My son is at that awkwardly perfect age where he is honest about other people's appearances. "Look, Mommy! That man is short," or "Why is that woman covered in wrinkles?" or "That person is fat!" have all been uttered by him at a decibel level usually reserved for jackhammers.

We try to mitigate this at home by celebrating people's difference. We focus on the differences…

3 Great Benefits of Increased Physical Activity and Ways to Encourage Your Child to Be More Active

As a mom of three, I realize how important it is for my children to get enough exercise and have time to play outside.  Things have changed dramatically since I was a child growing up and I feel that kids today don’t have the opportunity to get outside to play.  Kids are either busy with school work, participating in after-school…

Child Obesity

Did you know that one in five children across America is overweight?  We are in the midst of yet another woeful statistic, and that is that childhood obesity has already reached epidemic proportions. The probability these children will follow this unhealthy pattern into adolescence and adulthood…

Bicycling is Great Exercise and the Entire Family Can Enjoy Exercising Together

As the weather has warmed up outside, I have noticed more children and teenagers in my neighborhood outside playing and riding their bikes, scooters, or skateboards.  I have noticed that the children in our neighborhood think that they own the road and aren’t always paying attention to traffic around them.  Sometimes they will even continue riding in the middle of…

Children - The New Faces of Obesity

It’s no secret that obesity is a problem in the United States.  And in spite of the fact that a hunger problem exists as well, our population as a whole eats more and moves less than the citizens of other countries.  Sadly, it’s no longer just affecting adults, but children as well.  Even though medicine has made huge strides and people, on average, are living longer, it has been said that today’s generation of children and teenagers may not live as long as their parents will.  So,…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
