Hi everyone…I really feel passionate about doing my part to help stop childhood obesity from becoming the ‘trend’ that it has recently. I want to make a difference. I feel lost at times at what kind of approach to take.
I love being around children and was thinking about creating some sort of outdoor fitness session for kids. I have not worked any specific details yet.
However, then I start thinking that what if I do this and then they go home to their parents where they are only offered processed, high fatty foods? All of my efforts would be abolished. Or would they?
Then I start to think that maybe I should be targeting the parents by doing some sort of nutrition class and/or even a seminar to share ideas on how to organize your life to create more time towards making healthy meals. I could also talk about how to combat excuses towards exercise; the importance of role modeling; limiting beliefs; and how to attain an unstoppable attitude.
So this is where I’m at. I was hoping for your input.
What would you like to see in your own community to help stop the childhood obesity trend? Or, do you have any suggestions about who/whom the target should be in terms of stopping this trend from continuing. Do you feel obesity stems from a variety of factors?
Thank you for taking the time to comment.
Have a terrific day!
