When you are a child, you tend to imitate many things that those older than you do. In many cases, your parents are some of your biggest role models. This may be why a recent report found that those parents that were most involved in their lives lowered their children’s risk of obesity as an adult. A survey of adults found that those who were most involved in their children’s lives were more likely to pack healthy lunches, encourage fruit and veggie intake, as well as get their children involved in staying active. It is suggested then that active parenting helps children become healthy adults inside and out.
