A recent study shows that obese children who lose their weight through diet and exercise may become stronger and more agile in this process. German researchers found that the program that was based on physical activity and diet education was not only able to help children lose pounds but was also able to build their stamina, power, balance and coordination.
This study is pointing towards the importance of exercise in fighting against the problem of obesity among children. More and more children are becoming overweight main reason being lack of physical activities. Most children prefer to play video games or watching TV in place of outdoor riding bikes and playing games.
The parents also need to be more active so that their children can adopt their good healthy habits.
