National Childhood Obesity Month

by Rosanne Ullman | September 29, 2014

National Childhood Obesity MonthAs a salon pro but also as a parent, grandparent or other relative, you have influence over the children in your life. Today one-third of U.S. children are overweight or obese, putting them at risk for adult conditions like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and even heart disease. September is National Childhood Obesity Awarness Month, and a good time to consider: how can you help in your role as a beauty advisor?

*When you have a child hair cut on your book or you’re expecting a client who tends to have a child wait during her service, make a bowl of fresh fruit available.

*Create a handout from downloadable information such as the Institute of Medicine’s Early Childhood Obesity Prevention Policies, and simply stack copies of the information on the front desk.

*Hold a “Middle School Beauty Night” or “Teen Beauty Night” and, along with perhaps braiding, blowouts or nail services, ask a medical professional to come and speak about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

*Designate one Saturday quarterly or yearly “Family Day,” and provide activities, nutritional snacks and information on healthy living as well as your menu of beauty services.
