After School Classes Will Make Your Child a Better Athlete and Person

 

Childhood obesity is a serious health issue, particularly in America. Children who suffer from obesity can be bullied and teased. This can lead to feelings of isolation, depression and low self-esteem. Further, these feelings can leave a lasting affect that leads into adulthood and can set an individual back emotionally for the rest of their life. Childhood obesity leads to a higher incidence of chronic health issues, asthma, heart disease, sleep apnea, bone and joint issues and type 2 diabetes. Many obese children have type 2 diabetes which can result in heart disease, kidney failure, digestion issues, nerve damage and worse. High blood pressure, high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease are also risk factors for children with obesity.

One of the greatest advantages of joining after school classes is that a healthy lifestyle is created. Physical activity and an active lifestyle are taught. Love of movement is honed and will help with any other sports they become involved in. That’s another great aspect of becoming an athlete—children are encouraged to become active in general, even when they’re not at gymnastics classes. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, children will learn how to be successful with their physical skills at our after school classes.

 

Improve Your Children’s Lives with Afterschool Classes

 

As a parent, you need to encourage healthy eating habits. Eating healthy starts at a young age, and it’s never too early to teach your children how to cook healthily. One of the first healthy eating habits it to eat at home, rather than out, which depending on your child’s age, may or may not be an issue. When your children eat meals outside of the home, provide healthy but appealing options so that they don’t feel motivated to find and buy food elsewhere. Variety of options can also help motivate healthy eating.

 

Explore the Benefits of After School Classes

 

Healthy eating is no big secret. But it is vital for your young athlete to eat healthily. That includes vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Whole grains are unrefined such as brown rice or quinoa (which technically, is not a grain). Low fat products are advantageous to consume, although not all fats are created equal. Feed them lean proteins such as lentils, legumes and beans. Reasonably sized food portions should always be practiced—and these generally are not the portions you’ll find at restaurants. You should never eat “till you’re full” but rather till you’re satiated. Limit sugary beverages and try to offer foods that you can identify the ingredients.
