Childhood obesity

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Christopher Marshall is doing his best to help prevent childhood obesity.

He suggests limiting "screen time" to less than 2 hours per day.

Keep only healthy snacks on hand in the home.  If you bring it in the home, they'll eat it.

See your doctor if you have a concern based on your observations or if the child is trending out of bounds on his/her growth curve.
