Good versus bad fat
The 5:2 Diet
Ten of the healthiest snacks you can eat
Does your child have a weight problem?
Your child may have a weight problem if he or she:
- Wears clothes that are much larger than their age (more than two sizes above their age).
- Is much bigger than other children in their class at school.
- Watches more than three hours of television a day.
- Eats just as much or more than adults.
- Eats takeaway food more than twice a week.
- Gets puffed when doing physical activity.
- Constantly says he or she is hungry or is always looking for food.
If your child has several of these features it is important that he or she is correctly assessed. Your doctor will be able to assess your child’s growth, as well as eating and activity habits, and to provide further advice.
