Child Obesity and how theTsolutions can help you fight it!

 In United States child obesity is the most common nutritional disease. Due to adverse effects never seen before in kids, child obesity is considered the worst public health problem and social crisis. Diabetes, high cholesterol, left ventricular hypertrophy, atherosclerosis, metabolic syndrome, sleep disorders, hip pain, hypertension, heart failure, as well as psychological effects such as stigmatization, discrimination, depression and emotional trauma are some of the devastating health complications associated with child obesity affecting kids 10 year old and younger. Obesity in childhood also substantially increases the risk of being an obese adult. Discrimination against overweight children begins early in childhood and becomes progressively institutionalized. Because obese children tend to be taller than their non-overweight classmates, they are up to be viewed as more mature, an inappropriate expectations will affect the way they socialize with other kids their age.


Every day we see more and more obese kids in schools, and sadly everything indicates that the number will outrageously increase. Obesity affects one in five children in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention*, over 9 million (16%) of all 6-19-year-olds are overweight or obese—a number that has tripled since 1980.


While the number of children and adolescents developing Type-2 Diabetes alarming increases (also termed as adult-onset diabetes) due to being overweight, sleep Apnea (interruption of breath while sleeping) is considered as the most severe problem faced by obese children.

The high levels of cholesterol and high blood pressure, liver diseases, orthopedic problems and asthma (some of the main risk factors for development of heart diseases) are found in most of the obese children; more than 70% obese adolescents retain their overweight and obese condition even during their adulthood.


With obesity rates rising among children, Florida legislators want to find a way to put a stop to it. They are pushing to increase the requirement for physical education in Elementary School children.

The Florida legislature is considering a bill that would require kindergarten through 5-th grade students to spend at least 2 and half hours a week either exercising or learning about health. I some counties in Florida daily physical activities is now mandatory. In Watergrass Elementary School a physical activity log is send home every quarter, to be completed by parents; turning in the log at the end of the quarter is obligatory to obtain a grade “A” on physical education.


First Lady Michelle Obama is also concern with this social and health crisis and recently launched the Let’s Move! Campaign to solve the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation. “We all know the numbers,” Obama said. “I mean, one in three kids is overweight or obese, and we’re spending 0 billion a year treating obesity-related illnesses. So we know this is a problem, and there’s a lot at stake.”


There are basically two ways you can work toward reversing or preventing childhood obesity,

1 Improve Eating Habits

2. Increase Physical Activity


If your child is overweight or obese, a crash diet is not necessary. The only thing needed is an improved way of eating, that your kids can sustain for years to come. And it will be easier for both you and your kids, if you apply changes to the entire family’s menu. Move toward to a diet that is lower in fat and empty calories, and rich in fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, lean meats, and whole grains. Also beware of liquid calories. It’s easy to rack up an unhealthy, unnecessary number of calories by drinking them (in soda or juice, for example). Serve water and low- or non-fat milk instead.


On November 2009 Donald Trump joined this effort to fight child obesity, and along with The Trump Network launch, the company introduced Snazzle Snaxxs™, a line of affordable products formulated to fit kid’s nutritional needs and prevent child obesity, giving your kids the taste they crave and the nutrition you want.


While the ultimate solution is fresh foods as close to nature as possible, there’s a huge need to bridge the gap and provide the same satisfaction as “junk” food while helping, not hurting, our kids. Snazzle Snaxxs are a high protein, healthy alternative. They have the great flavor your kids crave but without the high amount of calories, fat, and sugars they don’t need. Your kids will enjoy the benefits of healthier eating such as performing better physically and academically, and you can take satisfaction in knowing you’re giving your children a healthy head start in life. Between the Snazzle Snaxxs™ products you can find healthy snacks, cereals, shakes and other drinks. To learn more about the Snazzle Snaxxs™, visit The Trump Network website.


Even though there is no quick fix to child or adult obesity , it can be solve and prevented, trough good constant nutritional habits and bringing physical activities as part of you daily routine.


Child obesity needs to be addressed at the root—at home and school. Children’s lifestyle is set-up and controlled by the parents. Therefore, parents concerned about overweight issues among their children must seriously evaluate the family lifestyle. Family lifestyle not only affects the child today, but establishes the norm for teenage and adult years.


I have always taken the position that if you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem. My effort to continue educating about this problem is my attempt to be part of the solution. To contact me and learn how The Trump Network can change your life style and solve child and adult obesity fill up the contact form on my website, I would love to help you change your life and put an end to child obesity in your family.

Help Your Child Develop Good Homework Habits

Developing good homework habits will ease some of the trouble. This article will show you how to help your child develop these good homework habits.

*What is their normal routine.

Check out your child’s normal homework routine. Watch them and find out when they do it and about how long it takes them. Take notes and record your findings. Your notes will be important information for you to use to help change their habits.

*Right after school.

Right after school when they get home, have them start their homework. They will still be in that “school” state of mind. If they take a break first I find it is more difficult to get them calmed back down and focused enough to complete their homework efficiently.

*Where they do their homework.

Have them do their homework in the same place every day. A place that has room to work and is free of distractions. That means no TV or anything that will grab their attention when they should be focused on their homework.

*Is someone there to help?

Is there someone there when your child is doing their homework? Sometimes they need help and it will go much more smoothly if someone is around to help. As your kids get older they can do research online or get help from study groups. My oldest daughter helps the younger kids with their homework until I get home.

*Always double check the homework.

Double check their homework every night. If they get something wrong, have them re-do it. If they are struggling with it, you might have to break it down and explain it to them.

*Communicate with their teachers.

Kids are kids, and sometimes they forget to bring things home or when a project is due. This is where it is important to read all of the stuff sent home from school and keep in contact with the teachers. You will be aware of what is going on, or when stuff is due, and if there have been current issues in the classroom.

*  If you work hard to establish good homework habits it will carry all the way through school and on into college.
