This can put them at risk of various medical problems including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnoea. Obesity can also adversely affect their self-esteem.
An important way to help your child with weight loss, maintaining a normal weight and develop healthy eating habits, is to encourage them to participate in regular physical activity.

To prevent injury, it is important for your child to warm up before exercising. This should include about five minutes of light activity, such as walking, callisthenics (jumping jacks, bending, knee lifts), and stretching.
Main exercise session - 40 minutes
The key to keep children interested is to continuously change each session so they are never repeating them, this keeps them focused on what they are achieving. This can include fast walking, jogging, biking, rollerblading, running, swimming, jumping rope or group activities, such as playing soccer, hockey, volleyball, baseball, basketball, football or even circuit classes.
