In a time when your mini-me would far prefer spending time on their gadget, it’s a real struggle dragging them outdoors to spend solid time together.

 

So, it’s no surprise that childhood obesity has been steadily climbing in Singapore. Ministry of Health figures show that 13 per cent of children in mainstream schools were overweight in 2017, up from 11 per cent in 2011. And studies show that fat kids are more likely to become overweight adults.

 

So, to ensure your kiddo doesn’t end up with obesity-related medical issues later in life, encourage them to take part in fun and exciting outdoor games with their siblings and friends.

 

The Health Promotion Board advises that waistlines will be kept in check with 20 minutes of outdoor physical activity per day. Just remind junior to slather on sunscreen before they head outdoors and drink plenty of fluids!
