Do you truly understand what happens when you reduce the television screen time in your home? Odds are, you will be creating a vacuum where you can begin to change your kid's eating habits merely by removing them from the 1.6 BILLION dollar a year advertising campaign kids and adolescents are exposed to via your TV...
"In the United States, more than 35% of children are overweight or obese, and that number is growing year after year. Not surprisingly, the rates of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and many lifestyle-related diseases in children and adolescents are also rapidly increasing."
In short: Reduce their screen time = change their eating habits.
Play Unplugged offers the healthy replacement of 'real play' activities that motivate kids to DO THINGS rather than continually placing themselves in front of that 1.6 billion dollar speeding locomotive that can flatten them...proverbially. :)
