Our expert says:
The most important factors in assisting young children to lose weight is to a) talk to their parents so that they can change their eating habits and cut out all high-fat, high-energy foods and drinks; b) encourage the children to be as physically active as possible - they can participate in school sports (running, jumping, swimming if possible, aerobics, group sport, skipping) - anything to get them active. By getting each child to be active for 30 min a day you can already make great changes in their lives.
