A recently published study with 411 obese children found that, low vitamin D levels are associated with risk for type-2 diabetes.
Obese children are more likely to be vitamin D deficient, and this is associated with insulin resistance. Obese children are also more likely to skip breakfast and drink soda, both factors associated with a vitamin D deficiency.
If you have children, teach them how to eat healthy, things are better learned at a younger age.
A third of American children and adolescents are obese.
Some doctors today are saying that this generation of children will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. And 1 in every 3 children born after the year 2000 will develop diabetes.
Remember… Eat healthy, feed healthy, be happy!
