Wednesday, March 11th, 2009 - The Chiropractors Association of Australia, South Australia (CAASA)
The highly emotive issue of childhood obesity will be the topic of a seminar spearheaded by the Child Care Links program of Burnside City Council on March 14.

Dr Brett Hill, a chiropractor and columnist, will discuss the short-term and long-term impact of early obesity and what it means for families.

"What we need to realize is that our kids are not just overweight, they are unhealthy. They are not eating as well as they should, they are not exercising as they should and they are more stressed than is right for kids of that age. What we need to focus on is not just getting them skinny, we need to focus on getting them healthy, and if we can do that, then their bodies will naturally find a healthy weight" says Dr Hill.

Topics include:
  • What foods to eat and what foods to avoid
  • Well rounded exercise for weight loss: more than just cardio
  • Why most diets don't work
  • Tools for long term weight loss
  • Tool for breaking old habits
What: Fighting Childhood Obesity

When: Wednesday 11th March 2009, 7.30pm - 9.00pm

Where: Burnside Council Hall, 401 Greenhill Road, Tusmore
