If you have a sport, try introducing it to your child because all sports are good calorie- burners. Though different sports burn calories at different degree, the fact that kids get to use their muscles mean they are on the right path to lose weight. If you do not have a sport, then this is the perfect time to have one. Some of the sports that you and your kid could try are full court basketball which burns 847 calories/hr, Lacrosse which burns 653 calories/hr, fencing which burns 456 calories/hr, and baseball which burns 388 calories/hr. You and your kids do not only lose weight through sports, but you get to have a fun quality time together.
Vacation may be expensive but if ever you plan on having one, plan a vacation that have a fun calorie burning activity waiting for you and your kid. This way, you do not only enjoy your much deserved vacation but you and your kid can continue shedding off those excess pounds. Try a vacation getaway to Canada for a downhill ski (673 calories/hr), go Wild Wild West as you do horseback riding (194 calories/hr), or go snorkeling in Hawaii (408 calories/hr).
If you are not into sports and vacation is a bit expensive, how about try dancing (456 calories/hr). You just need some music and you’re all set. Dancing is a good choice especially for young girls as they love to pretend that they are ballerinas or Hannah Montana.
The percentage of kids and teenagers who are obese is growing at an alarming rate, and most of the obese children stay this way even until they reach adulthood. Health professionals blame this to the availability of foods that are very high in calories and sodium, TV, video games, and even parents for not supervising their children. It is the parents’ responsibility to make sure that their kids grow fit and healthy.
