You know how important it is to eat well, but how can you instill healthy eating habits in your child as he or she grows? With one out of every three children in the United States overweight or obese, it's more important than ever to start your little one on the right track when it comes to nutrition.

“Introducing children to a lifetime of healthy eating should start early, even before baby’s first birthday,” says Valley Medical Group pediatrician and childhood obesity expert Sherry Sakowitz-Sukkar, M.D. Dr. Sakowitz-Sukkar is the founder and director of Healthy LifeWays: Valley’s Center for Pediatric Wellness and Weight Management in Park Ridge, NJ. “Research shows that a staggering 80 percent of obese adolescents grow up to be obese adults,” states Dr. Sakowitz-Sukkar. “Our goals are to help our patients develop healthy mindful eating habits, engage in fun exercise and learn new behaviors to sustain a healthy lifestyle.”

Watch Dr. Sakowitz-Sukkar discuss simple ways to introduce your child to a lifetime of eating healthfully. Learn more about tips you can use every day to help your child — and your entire family — stay on a path toward eating better.
