Brainstorm ideas for promoting a healthy lifestyle for children that centers around nutrition and exercise. Develop recommendations and create the script for a brief speech (perhaps a 60-second commercial) geared toward children and their families. Focus on informing children and parents on best practices in preventing obesity. Use the following questions to guide your thinking:
Think about basic statistics you have learned on the risks for obesity in middle childhood.
What are the long-term consequences of obesity in children?
Who is at risk?
What are experts’ recommendations for nutrition? for exercise/sports?
How would you go about educating children on healthy practices?
