Quick Tips For Parents To Overcome Childhood Obesity

Quick Tips For Parents To Overcome Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is a serious condition plaguing many adolescents and children these days. Obesity brings along with it a plethora of health scares such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes, all of which at a point of time were confined only to adults. Obesity in children also results in depression and self-esteem issues. Too much of calorie consumption accompanied by a sedentary lifestyle and other hormonal or genetic factors contribute to obesity in children.

Overcoming Childhood Obesity-

  1. Healthy Eating: Consider opting for vegetables and fruits over high-calorie and fatty foods such as crackers, cookies or other processed foods. Cut out on the intake of sweetened beverages that makes your child too full to grab other healthy foods. Encourage sitting together for a family meal and initiating interaction rather than turning on the TV or other electronic gadgets. Allow your child to decide his/her proportion of food and never over feed. This habit should be inculcated in the child since the formative years.

  2. Engaging in Physical Activity: Make sure and talk your child into not spending more than two hours sitting glued to the TV set or the computer on a daily basis. Rather, egg him/her on to go out in the open and enjoy the day underneath the sun. Try and start building in your child the habits of exercising and staying active right from the beginning. This will go a long way in deciding your child’s health and overall fitness in the future. Remember! Morning shows the day. And it’s up to you to structure out your child’s ‘morning’.

Quick Tips For Parents-

Encourage:

  1. Play time or physical activities in ways that your child enjoys, such as going for a walk or hike, playing at the park, playing sports, dancing or going for a bike ride (and join them!)

  2. Healthy home-packed lunches

  3. Drinking more water and eating whole vegetables

  4. Eating when you are truly hungry, not when you’re bored, mad, stressed, etc.

  5. Eating together as a family

  6. Decreased meal sizes

  7. Focus on health rather than taste

Discourage:

  1. Too much screen time

  2. Eating while watching TV or other screens

  3. Eating out

  4. Negative food cues and triggers by removing them

  5. Skipping meals if you are hungry

  6. Eating if you are not hungry

  7. Eating by the clock (you should eat when you’re truly hungry)

  8. Too much sugary drinks (sodas and fruit drinks)

Hi, doctors, My son is 7 years old. He is too week than his ribs can be counted from backside and front side. Although he has no illness. He weight is 18 kg. He doesn't take interest in having food. I have given him tonic also but in vein. Please suggest treatment or diet plan to make him healthier.

Hello sir, there is no need for a separate tetanus shot this time as your child is already immunised. She is protected from tetanus for atleast 5 years. So do not worry.

Hi, you have delivered just one month ago. Your menstruation may at art after a while if you are breast feeding. Also after six weeks if normal delivery and after 3 months if delivery is by c section you can start post natal exercises which will help you to get back in to your shape. Consult your obstetrician who did your delivery or a physiotherapist and learn the exercises.

Hi, A 3 year old girl is not supposed to be dry by night. Don't scold her much for this one. No excess water intake after dinner. Take her to toilet before sleep and three hours after sleep and 6 hrs after that. This is the first measure. Lots are still in the list. Thanks.

seizure control - important do's and don't

M.Sc - Psychology, MBA (Healthcare)
General Physician, Kangra

Any patient who is having seizures or epilepsy should take medicines regularly. A patient who has seizures and on medicine should be seizure-free for a minimum of two years before tapering of dosage. Most of the patients who become seizure free for few months or a year tries to decrease their dose on their own and sometimes stop it, that increases their chance of recurrence of seizures. It's very harmful because it affects their natural history of the disease and the seizures which could be controlled on single drug become drug resistant seizures. When a patient is considered for tapering of dosage. His drug is tapered slowly over few months.

Hi, for cold, cough and fever 1. Try to keep body warm 2. Do not eat and drink cold food items 3. Try to avoid persons affected with cold and cough because it spreads through droplet mode by coughing and sneezing 4. Take a tablet of levocetrizine and maybe an expectorant cough syrup for 4 days 5. Feed your baby and consult through audio video for details.

Remedies to Cure Cough

Remedies to Cure Cough
Home remedies for cough

Coughing is one of the most common health problems. When there is a blockage or irritant in your throat or upper air passages, your brain thinks a foreign element is present and tells your body to cough to remove that element. Coughing can also be due to a viral infection, common cold, flu, and smoking or health problems such as asthma, tuberculosis, and lung cancer.

Some of the symptoms of a cough are itchy throat, chest pain, and congestion. Instead of using over-the-counter cough syrups, you can try some natural cough treatments using readily available ingredients in your kitchen.
