Family Practitioner Questions Overweight

How do I prevent my children from becoming overweight?

Me and my husband both have weight issues and are overweight. I want to instill good habits in my son while trying to do the same for my husband and I. He is now 4 years old. Where should I start?

A good nutritionist.
No junk in fridge
Start now; Mom and Dad are the role models for healthy lifestyles. Get rid of the junk food. Try introducing foods listed in the Mediterranean diet. Also, get more exercise with the kids; e.g. walk the dog, throw the baseball, shoot some baskets, go swimming, etc, but do it on a regular basis.
