About Childhood Obesity

“Looks can be deceiving. It can be hard for parents to tell if their child is obese,” says Dr. Vaquero Solans. At a child’s regular check-ups, the pediatrician will assess a child’s weight based on body-mass index, which differs for each age and gender. Proper nutrition and exercise help keep kids fit, says Dr. Solans, who encourages parents to set a good example.
