Spoiling children in terms of a diet it is possible, however it is necessary to create conditions for the development of the child to his environment maintained active, cheerful atmosphere. Holidays spent in front of the TV with a plate of cake and soda, are unlikely to benefit your child.

According to the results of a recent study in a hospital C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital at the University of Michigan, more than 40% of parents whose children suffer from obesity at the age from 6 to 11 years, do not recognize the disease, claiming that their child is quite healthy. Scientists say that only 13% of parents in this situation respond positively, knowing that their child is suffering from obesity.
