As parents we try and take care of our child’s every need to keep them safe and help them to grow up to be strong, happy adults. One growing trend in the United States is the waistline of not only our adults but our children as well. Fast food and soda pop are staples in our diets and it is causing health concerns in not only grown ups but our young as well. These health issues are bad enough but the earlier in life they appear the more of a problem they become. Studies have shown that families that make and eat meals together are less likely to have weight and health issues. Plus kids that eat with their families are shown to have better grades and socialize with their peers more efficiently. So parents should not only use a child locator device to keep track of their children they should also use dinner time as a time to ask them about their day and discus a healthy diet.
