September National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

Sponsor: American College of Sports Medicine Description: xternal Links Disclaimer Logo
One in 3 children in the United States is overweight or obese. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health problems that were once seen only in adults, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
The good news is that childhood obesity can be prevented. In honor of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, South Central Medical & Resource Center encourages your family to make healthy changes together.

  • Get active outside: Walk around the neighborhood, go on a bike ride, or play basketball at the park. Children should be involved in active play for 1 hour each day.
  • Limit screen time: Keep screen time (time spent on the computer, watching TV, or playing video games) to 2 hours or less a day.
  • Make healthy meals: Buy and serve more vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain foods.
  • Serve 5 servings of a variety of vegetables and fruits daily.
  • Avoid giving children sugar containing beverages such as soda, fruit juices or sports drinks.

  • Taking small steps as a family can help your child stay at a healthy weight.

  • South Central Medical & Resource Center offers well-child exams and nutritional counseling.
  • We are here to keep our community healthy. Come in and see how we can help you today.
