Weight Loss Tips For Kids

BUT! BUT! BUT I DON’T HAVE TIME!

Yup, it’s so fun to snuggle down into the covers for that extra ten minutes of sleep on school mornings! And sleep is important! (Remember: You need about eight hours of snooze time a night.)

You know your brain relies on breakfast energy to think clearly. So clearly you need to think breakfast! It’s fine to keep it simple: a bowl of whole grain cereal with 1 percent low-fat or skim milk (maybe sprinkled with a few nuts) and a piece of fruit will do the trick.

Talk to your parent about making a switch from regular orange juice to calcium-fortified orange juice and from whole milk to 1 percent low-fat or skim milk on your behalf. (Remember: Little children in the family may need higher-fat milk, though. Ask the pediatrician.)
