Warning Always consult a physician before attempting any exercise or exercise plan. Step 1: Focus on healthy foods Focus on healthy foods rather than putting your child on a strict diet. Eliminate high-calorie fillers and substitute healthy foods, such as raw vegetables in place of fried foods. Tip Seek professional help if your child has an eating disorder or is obese. Step 2: Keep your child active Plan activities that keep your child moving and physically engaged such as summer camp, karate class, dancing, or sports. Step 3: Share healthy dinners Share a balanced meal as a family and then shift to a fun activity like playing a game or going for a walk. Tip Limit sedentary time with the TV, video games, and computers to a few hours a day. Step 4: Make a schedule Institute regular meal and snack times and restrict all-day snacking. Step 5: Be a role model Eat right and exercise and your child will more easily adopt a healthy lifestyle by following your lead. Did You Know? Did you know?
