Course Syllabus: Childhood Obesity
with CEU Certificate*
Are you one of those parents who constantly worry about your child's weight? Are you unsure about the kind of help and support an overweight child needs? Or are you looking for ways to prevent your child from gaining excess weight? Whichever the case, this course will provide the information and support you need.
This course uses a two-sided approach. First, we want to offer help to any parents out there who already have overweight children and want to help them get healthy and slim down safely. We also want this course to serve as a resource for all parents concerned with healthy eating habits, exercise, and everyday issues to prevent childhood obesity.
For that reason, the first half of this course is geared to those parents currently battling the weight problem with their children (or any child for that matter). The second half goes through the stages of a child's life, from infancy through adolescence, and gives you information, tips, and instruction to help keep your child healthy and within a normal weight range. If your child is currently overweight, this part will provide you with ideas for healthy eating habits and activities.
This course will also help you identify what you need to do now and down the road to help your child lose weight and stay healthy. We'll go over the checkpoints you'll pass along the way, and every twist and turn that you may face up ahead. Not only will this course explain childhood obesity to you, it will help you conquer it with your child.
Just remember, however, that this course should never replace the expert of advice of a doctor, dietician, or otherwise qualified healthcare professional. The purpose of this course is education and awareness. It's the first step in understanding and conquering the childhood obesity epidemic. With that said, welcome to the course.
This course does not require any previous medical background. Any aged learner (18 or older) is welcome.
