Children, particularly those who are overweight can benefit from after school activities

Most research has shown that children are growing fatter because of inactively and not necessary because of the amount of junk food they consume, although the junk food does play a part. Most parents find it difficult to refuse their child treats but treats become excessive when given too readily.

Children tend to spend hours watching TV or playing computer games. However, studies have shown that if a child is given an alternative and TV and games are restricted, children tend to become more active and regain their vitality. When a child is active and happy they tend to spend less time thinking about and eating large amounts of food.

When your child starts to make progress - feels fitter and loses some weight - it is important to praise them with positive comments. Positive comments will enhance confidence and greatly increase self-esteem.

After school recreational activities are a great way for children to become active and lose excess fat. If your child is gaining weight, it is important to quickly get them active as the more weight they put on the more difficult it is for them to lose weight. Schools tend to have a range of fun activities such as football, basketball, gymnastics and Karate. These activities are also available privately; the local sports centre is a good place to find out what is available in your local area. Participation in such activities is a great way for your child to socialise and become fitter and, if part of a controlled healthy diet, will lead to weight loss and an enjoyable active social experience.

It sad when children are not given the opportunity to have a healthy life. Those who are overweight after the age of eight tend to find it increasingly difficult to shed the excess weight. This is why it is so important for parents/ carers to help children with their diet and weight control.
