(HealthDay News) -- Cases of childhood obesity have risen steadily over the past two decades, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.
Children who are obese are more likely to be bullied, are at higher risk of developing other chronic health problems and are more likely to remain obese as adults, the agency says.
The CDC suggests:
- Offer kids plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole-grain products.
- Include low-fat or non-fat dairy products.
- Opt for lean meats, poultry, fish, lentils and beans, and avoid higher-fat meat.
- Serve appropriately-sized portions.
- Encourage your family to drink lots of water.
- Limit sugar-laden beverages.
- Limit sugar and saturated fats.
