In the fight against childhood obesity, it’s important to promote an active lifestyle for kids.  Studies show that family based interventions work best to prevent and treat childhood obesity.  Recently, I participated in a fantastic family-oriented triathlon weekend, where kids raced one day and adults the next.  What a great way to get kids interested and enthusiastic in not one but three sports – and adults got to be great role models at the same time!

So this Father’s Day weekend, grab your kids and embrace a fun, family-oriented activity – and keep the theme going all year long!
