Health Tip: Keep Your Child's Weight Down

(HealthDay News) -- Children between ages 8 and 15 who are in the upper half of their normal weight range are more likely than their leaner peers to become obese or overweight as young adults, research shows.

The hospital offers these potential solutions for children who are overweight:

  • Having nutritional counseling.
  • Limiting portion sizes.
