Our Children or Gifts

Childhood Obesity is a big problem these days, because children eat and don’t exercise they would rather be on the computer, the PS system or on a hand held. But if we want our children to be healthy and live a happy life well into old age, we got to do something about it now. We and yes I mean every parent, we need to get our children outside, to play, to ride their bike,  to swim, to even play with the family dog either way their getting the exercise they need. And yes people I even mean the children that are in wheelchairs, even though they can’t get out of these things because of disabilities there is other ways you can help them be fit and healthy. And at the same time you could be spending time, and I mean this by quality time with your children so they know that the parent and or parents love and ACCEPT them very much. See people according to the CDC below childhood obesity is been bad for 30 years or more it is time to take action, its time to take our children’s health back from all the electronics.

  • Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.1, 2
  • The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2010. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to 18% over the same period.1, 2
  • In 2010, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese.1
  • Overweight is defined as having excess body weight for a particular height from fat, muscle, bone, water, or a combination of these factors.3 Obesity is defined as having excess body fat.4
  • Overweight and obesity are the result of “caloric imbalance”—too few calories expended for the amount of calories consumed—and are affected by various genetic, behavioral, and environmental factors.5,6

  • TIME TO SAVE OUR CHILDREN, AND NO I DON’T MEAN TAKE THEIR ELECTRONICS WAY, I MEAN LIMIT THE TIME THEY SPEND ON THEM, MAKE SURE THEY ARE GETTING THE EQUAL TIME THEY SPEND ON THE ELECTRONICS, TO THE SAME TIME THEY NEED TO SPEND OUTSIDE.
