Childhood Obesity, What are my kids eating?
Strategies to Prevent/Address Obesity Epidemic
The number of overweight children in the United States has increased dramatically in recent years. Approximately 10 percent of 4 and 5 year old
children are overweight, double that of 20 years ago. For most children, overweight is the result of unhealthy eating patterns (too many calories) and too little physical activity. Since these habits are established in early childhood, efforts to prevent obesity should begin early. The “What are my kids eating?” program reviews the current trends and medical research in childhood obesity and gives parents fun and innovative strategies to help prevent and address childhood obesity.
Video Games “It’s just a game right?”
Understand why the ESBR rating system is so important.
Video games can be a great source of entertainment, education, and now exercise. Since the early days of Atari, Super Mario Brothers, and Sonic the Hedge Hog, some games have developed very intense and sophisticated content. From realistic violence, nudity, sexual themes, crimes, drug and alcohol use, strong language, adult concepts and online gaming and chatting, video games have become much more intense than they used to be.
The “It’s just a game right?” program will review the ESBR rating system for games, analyze actual game footage and titles, instruct how to set parent controls on gaming systems, and online access through gaming systems.
