Health Tip: When Your Child Is Overweight
Openly support efforts to lose extra pounds

(HealthDay News) -- If your child is overweight, encouraging him or her to eat healthy foods and get plenty of exercise can help in the child's quest to lose weight. But don't forget to offer loving support.

The Weight-Control Information Network offers these suggestions:

  • Work with your child to set specific goals and help your child reach them, tracking progress along the way.
  • When your child succeeds, offer big hugs and plenty of praise.
  • Talk to your child, and listen to what he or she has to say about weight. Talk with the child about any concerns.
