Obesity in America has reached new heights and the epidemic is sweeping beyond the adult population and is now severely affecting our nation’s children. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the past 30 years childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and more than quadrupled in adolescents. If this obesity growth isn’t alarming enough, in America today, more than one third of children are considered overweight or obese – that’s more than 23 million people affected.
How Can We Combat this Epidemic?
Due to this alarming trend, September was named National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. Throughout the month of September, educators, doctors and elected officials will stand and fight the childhood obesity epidemic to help create a healthier future for Americans. However, it’s not just these individuals who can help take a stand against childhood obesity. Childhood obesity doesn’t have to be permanent. There are steps that parents and children can take both separately and together to help create a healthier and more nutritious future for our children.
Other than the obvious solutions of eating less or more nutritious meals and becoming more active, there are other solutions that can help to decrease the likelihood of a child becoming obese.
The Dream Dinners Solution
Planning, prepping and cooking a dinner may not always be easy for mothers and fathers to do on a regular basis due to their hectic schedules, and this is commonly why these parents turn to fast food meals or eating out at restaurants. However, Dream Dinners provides a solution for busy parents.
Dream Dinners is a franchise that helps families make homemade meals at their locations to bring home and then freeze, thaw and cook them at their own convenience. Dream Dinners enables parents to prepare 12 dinners in an hour using freshly prepped ingredients and that are nutritious. It’s the goal of each Dream Dinners location to bring families together around the dinner tables to help provide a nutritious mealtime experience to them, and making them less susceptible to this obesity epidemic.
