Description:
We all want our children to grow up to be happy, healthy adults. But it can sometimes be hard to know how. Unfortunately, more and more of our children are carrying extra weight – which is increasing their risk of health conditions like heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and even cancer later in their life. It doesn’t have to be like this. Making small changes to your children’s diet and physical activity could make big differences to their future health. As a parent, you can teach them habits and skills to last them a lifetime. Habits they will hopefully pass on to their children. If you’re reading this, you might be thinking about making changes to your family’s lifestyle. You may be wondering where to begin. And if so, this booklet is for you. It’s not a complete guide but it’s a good starting point – to help you get going.
