It’s easier to beat than you think–if you start early.

The March issue of Pediatrics reports simple lifestyle changes that reduce the chances of childhood obesity by as much as 40% in preschoolers.

These include:

  • spending less than 2 hours a day on “screen time,”
  • getting 10 or more hours a sleep a night, and
  • eating with the family at least 5 nights a week.

Now, add a good book at bedtime and your children are well set to grow into their best!

Bonus? These are habits that will stand your child in good stead for life!
