PREVENTION OF OBESITY
To avoid obesity one must first understand fully the reasons for excessive calorie intake. But there must also be the will to take prompt measures when the first few extra pounds appear. It is much easier to prevent obesity than to treat it. Prevention is most effective when patterns of diet and exercise are established early in life. Mothers need to know that the fat baby is not necessarily the healthiest baby, and that they should not force the infant to eat every last bit of food. The early introduction of cereal and other baby foods before the baby really needs them could contribute to overweight babies. Preschool children should not be bribed or rewarded with food; they should have a variety of activities so that they do not depend too much upon food for pleasure.
In families where one or both parents are obese, children are very likely to become obese and remain so throughout life. This can be prevented by changing the eating patterns so that fewer calorie-rich foods are eaten. Use fruits for desserts often and cakes, pies, or pastries seldom; broil, stew, or roast meats instead of frying; put less butter and cream on vegetables and learn to use other flavorings.
Children should be urged to get more exercise and should be expected to perform some chores requiring daily physical activity. Family recreation needs to include more participation in physical activity and somewhat less of the quiet pastimes such as watching television and riding about in automobiles.
