Child Obesity - Greg Gorman of Prairieville La Has Just Released A New Study On Obesity Prevention

Greg Gorman went on to say that he credits the volleyball with keeping his daughter active and fit. Without volleyball he felt that his daughter would have succumbed to obesity and other weight related health issues.

Online PR News – 27-August-2010 – – New Report on Child Obesity was released on Wed August 23, 2010 which encouraged Law Makers to consider giving parents tax credits to cover the cost of athletic activities. The purpose of the tax credit is to cover the cost associated with kids who participate in team sports.

According to recommendations presented in a recent report on childhood obesity conducted by Pennington biomedical research Center Louisiana State University, parents should encourage children to embrace more outdoor activity.

In a recent conversation with Greg Gorman of Prairieville La, he shared with me a story of how he was able to combat obesity by allowing his daughter to join a volleyball team.

“Our daughter came to us one day and said that she wanted to join the volleyball team at her school. My wife became so excited that she ran out to the local sporting goods store and purchase every piece of equipment that was required including a full-size volleyball net for the backyard. My daughter loves volleyball and has remained very active in the practice Regiment and individual skill development required to become a starter on her team."

Greg Gorman went on to say that he credits the volleyball with keeping his daughter active and fit. Without volleyball he felt that his daughter would have succumbed to obesity and other weight related health issues.

Listed below are a few suggestions design to help parents prevent childhood obesity.

• Establish household rules for television and computer use, and set reasonable limits. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children and youth watch no more than two hours of quality television programming per day.

• Teachers and School Administrators should incorporate and promote physical activity breaks during and between classes. Try five minutes of activity such as marching in place, and stretching. It is also recommended that the teacher should include music in order to make the activities fun for the kids while they exercise.

The report also made a recommendation to Policy Makers to provide tax credits to parents whose children participate in physical activity programs to help cover fees, equipment, and uniforms.

Above anything else I challenge you to get involved with your kids as a family in some form of exercise are play. Exercise becomes more effective as it becomes a daily habit or routine therefore try to pick an activity like volleyball and designate days out of the week for the family to get outside.
