Podcast transcript
Obesity podcast (PDF 152kb)

Psychologist Warren Cann talks with 3RRR radio host Jacinta Parsons about childhood obesity and suggests some ways to approach this issue as a family.

Warren discusses recent research into childhood obesity and shares tips for talking to children about weight. It should be about health, not about appearances. Keep a variety of healthy food in the house and try to eat well and be active as a family. A good breakfast and regular meal times can help avoid snacking. Parents can lead by example and new research shows that fathers have an important role to play.
