1.- Start small. Gradualchanges are easiest to incorporate into the daily routine and to maintain long term. Start by making a few small changes, such as turning off the TV duringdinner, switching from soda to skim milk or water, and taking a family walk after dinner once a week.
2.-Set goals. For example, your child's goal might be to eatfruit for afternoon snacks. Your goal might be to take a brisk walk three days a week. The family's goal might be to limit fast-food meals to once a month.
3.- Recognize triggers. Be prepared for situations that may tempt you to fall back to your old habits.
4. - Keep it positive. Focus on healthy lifestylechanges, rather than your child's appearance or a number on the scale. Remember, treating childhood obesity isn't a race. It takes time and dedication to replaceestablished behaviors with new, healthier behaviors.
