Do You Know If Your Kid Is Overweight?

25 million kids in the United States are overweight. That's 1 out of 3 kids. According to a study in Science Daily, most parents are unable to judge whether their kids are at a healthy weight. And many of them who know their kid is overweight, think it's just baby fat that the child "will grow out of ". The reality is, few kids will lose that weight without the parent making lifestyle changes. The best way to tell if your child is at a healthy weight is to check with his or her pediatrician. PARENTS, be realistic about your child's weight. Don't turn a childhood problem into a life long problem. Help your kids to control their weight.
