How to Prevent Childhood Obesity

In this episode of Great Family, we are honored to have Dr. Jyu Lin Chen, Associate Professor of UCSF Nursing Program, and Dr. Angela Sun, Executive Director of Chinese Community Health Resource Center and Public Health Educator, to talk about childhood obesity problems in Bay Area’s Chinese community, as well as how the “Healthy Moms, Healthy Kids” program helps mothers and families to live a healthy life.

The followings are the tips provided by Dr. Angela Sun:

Every day each child should consume 5 portions of vegetables and fruits, drink 4 cups of water, take 3 portions of low fat milk products, limit screen time to less than 2 hours, exercise for 1 hour, and don’t drink any sugary drinks.
