Description:
We all want our children to grow up to be happy, healthy adults. But it can sometimes be hard to know how. Encouraging children to eat smart and move more is a great way to start. The information in this booklet has been put together by health professionals and will help you help your child to eat well, move more and live longer. Whatever their weight, it is important that children eat properly and get lots of exercise to help them build a healthy body. If they are overweight they are at greater risk of heart disease and diabetes in later life. If they are underweight it is just as important for them to eat healthy food and be active. In Ireland, 1 in 4 children aged seven are either overweight or obese Staying a healthy weight is all about balance. Your child takes in energy through their food and their body uses up energy through physical activity. If the energy they take in is more than the energy they use they will put on weight and become overweight. Follow the information in this booklet to help your child reach a healthier weight. If you are concerned about your child’s weight – speak with your School Nurse or GP.
