As the obesity epidemic becomes more widespread, it’s of utmost importance for fathers to play an active role in the nutrition and activity level of their children, right from the beginning.

 

 

 

Recent research finds a strong connection between the weight of these chubby toddlers and what their weight will be like when they are adults.

 

 

 

Researchers found that around 80 percent of early-school-aged children that were overweight or obese still had weight issues by the time they reached the age of 12. The research also showed that what a child weighed as early as the age of 2 or 3 was a factor in what they weighed when they were 12.
