If you are looking into a child obesity treatment program for your child there are some things you should know before making your choices. First it is essential, if your child is a preteen or in their early teens, to be certain that they are not still growing. Adolescents tend to put on some extra weight before they have their growth spurt and then they wind up tall weight appropriate children. At the same time if your young child appears to be overweight then they likely are and starting them on a program to reduce their weight and improve their health is very important. There is a fine line between being worried about the health of your child and knowing when they are truly overweight.

The treatment programs will tell you that it is essential to start good eating habits early on. But if your child appears to be gaining more weight then you and your health care provider think is good for them you may want to look into what you can do to change that. First, like in any treatment program, the health care provider will want to do a full check–up to see if there is any medical reason why the child is overweight. Genetic and biochemical conditions can play a part in weight issues. These include hypothyroidism, Prader-Willi Syndrome and other hormonal conditions. Only once these conditions have been ruled out can the health care provider put your child into the correct treatment program.

The right child obesity treatment program for your child will take into account the fact that losing weight is not an easy thing to do and set up guidelines that you and, most importantly, your child can live with. This will include both eating and exercise suggestions along with suggestions on making things easier for your child by offering helpful hints on self image and self esteem, eating meals with the family, exercises that can be fun and perhaps family oriented. Encouragement not discouragement is a key issue to helping your child with their weight problems.
