How to Prevent Prediabetes in Children

DESCRIPTION: Prediabetes is a disease in and of itself, associated with early damage to the eyes, kidneys, and heart. The explosion of diabetes in children is a result of our epidemic of childhood obesity, which may be stemmed with a plant-based diet, given that vegetarian kids grow up not only taller, but thinner.
We make life and death decisions at the grocery store buying food for our family. It’s never too early to start our kids off on the right foot. See my video Heart Disease Starts in Childhood (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/heart-disease-starts-in-childhood/).
And healthy doesn’t have to mean more expensive. Check out Eating Healthy on a Budget (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/eating-healthy-on-a-budget/).
For some tips on getting our kids to eat their vegetables, see my videos Tricks to Get Kids to Eat Healthier at School (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/tricks-to-get-kids-to-eat-healthier-at-school/) and Tricks to Get Kids to Eat Healthier at Home (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/tricks-to-get-kids-to-eat-healthier-at-home/).
Once one has prediabetes, there’s a way to prevent it from progressing further. See my previous video How to Prevent Prediabetes from Turning into Diabetes (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/how-to-prevent-prediabetes-in-children).
