If you have a child who is outside the normal weight range for his age, then you are the one who must make efforts and take steps to ensure that you lose those pounds in order to live a life as close to normal as possible. However, the first thing you need to do is consult your child’s doctor about the best possible course of action that will also protect your child’s health. But quite frankly, if you don’t make efforts to help your baby shed those pounds, you are putting your baby’s health at risk. We don’t let our children play in the street, we don’t let them run with knives, so why on earth do we allow them to commit suicide at the hands of Twinkie? If you have a child who is overweight, the following tips on his diet should help you.
1. Using healthy alternatives:
First of all, don’t make food a punishment or a reward. Food is part of your kids’ problem and you don’t have to use it against them. Instead, introduce them to healthy alternatives. Do not leave garbage at home and do not allow them to buy lunch at school. Prepare their lunches for school so you know what they’re eating. If you don’t give them junk food, they won’t be able to eat it at home and you can work to ensure they can’t have junk food when they leave the house.
