Reducing Risks of Diabetes

Adopting a healthy lifestyle will help prevent obesity and development of diabetes. This can include eating healthy balanced food and engaging in moderate to intense physical activities such as walking. Parents can teach healthy eating habits in children, reduce their intake of sweetened beverages, fast food, and foods high in sugar and fats. Encouraging an active life of play and sports, and limiting TV and computer time, are critical in maintaining a healthy weight.
