Nutrition & Obesity In Children

October 15, 2018

 

From: GI Kids

 

Poor nutrition can lead to a variety of problems in children, including excessive weight gain and obesity. Childhood obesity can in turn be a precursor to many health problems, from Type II diabetes to heart disease to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). It is essential to provide your child proper nutrition and help him or her establish good eating habits that will last an entire lifetime.

 
Why do we eat?

Just like cars need gasoline, people need fuel too, but we get our energy from food. To learn how food turns into energy –when you start chewing your food - read the Nutrition 101 information sheet.

 
Why is nutrition important in childhood?

Kids are still growing and need lots of good nutrition to build strong bodies that will last their whole lives, but they don’t need empty calories found in junk food, soda and fatty foods. Reading labels will help you make better choices about the foods you choose.
