Medical News Today reports that focusing on lifestyle changes rather than body weight may be more effective in helping children grow up healthy.

In a study conducted by researchers from the UCLA School of Nursing, normal-weight and obese children were asked to undergo a two-week residential lifestyle program, which entailed daily exercise sessions and a high-fiber, low-fat, plant-based diet. Although the reported weight loss was minimal, both groups showed better cardiovascular health and lower metabolic disease risk.

Adopting a healthy lifestyle will have more benefits for your child in the long run. The right mix of fruits, vegetables, and proteins in your child’s meals should go hand-in-hand with ample exercise and enough sleep.
