Healthy Life VA: Would shaming parents prevent childhood obesity?

Today’s Healthy Life Virginia newsletter features a column on whether shaming parents for their own weight woes and bad eating habits might help protect  kids against obesity. Click here to read it. The newsletter also shares a tasty salmon recipe and a video demonstrating how to do a modified version of yoga’s pigeon pose — great for stretching out your hips and glutes.

October’s shaping up to be a great month for health-related events– including seminars on back pain and breast cancer, fundraising walks and runs, a vegetarian potluck meal and a fall farmers market festival. You can get details about these events and more in the newsletter’s  “What’s Happening” section.
