Children of dads who participate in physical childcare tasks such as bathing and dressing them between 2-4 years old are less likely to be obese. The inverse was found to be true, also. These findings were reported at Obesity Week 2016. This could be due to the fact that these activities are a marker for more stable homes, leading to better health behaviors.
PositiveTip: Fathers, be actively involved in the care of your children–it could have major impact on their health.
