As a parent, there’s lot you can do to help your child reach a healthier weight.  One of the most powerful ways to encourage your child is to be active and eat well. All children need about 60 minutes of physical activity a day for good health, but it doesn’t need to be all at once. Split them into several short 10-minute or even five-minute bursts of activity throughout the day. Ban “sweetened” drinks from the home – persuade your children to drink water instead. Make sure the whole family eats breakfast every day. Drag the kids away from the TV, computer and games console, and instead get active as a family by walking, cycling, going to the park, playground or swimming together. Prepare more meals at home. Avoid over-sized portions. Start meals with small servings and let your child ask for more if they’re still hungry. Avoid giving adult-sized plates to younger children – it can encourage them to eat too much.

If your child is underweight, it’s important that your child gains weight in a healthy way, and this means eating a balanced diet which is three meals a day and healthy snacks. To help your child gain weight, increase their portion sizes at mealtimes, especially for starchy foods such as bread, rice, pasta and potatoes. If your child isn’t consuming enough calories, you can boost their daily intake by providing healthier snacks, such as dried fruits, small sandwiches with cheese or eggs, bananas, etc. Even if your child is underweight, it’s still important that they’re physically active. Physical activity helps them develop strong, healthy bones and muscles. Keep regular records of your child’s height and weight. Once your child has reached a healthy weight, their diet may need adjusting so that they don’t become overweight.
