An observational study of nearly 25,000 children whose mothers adhered to five healthy lifestyle factors were found to have a 75% lower risk for obesity when compared to children of mothers who did not adhere to any of these habits.  The beneficial lifestyle comprised a healthy diet, regular exercise, BMI less than 25, no smoking, low alcohol intake. Even when the kid’s own lifestyle habits were poor, if their mother’s led a low risk lifestyle they had a lower risk for obesity!

LifeTip: Mother’s, never forget that, as an early health reformer wrote, your “influence is an unceasing influence.” (Adventist Home, p. 240). Watch “Lose Weight Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
