Prevention for Individuals and Families


Obesity prevention for individuals and families begins with healthier choices—balancing healthier nutrition and physical activity while managing daily stress. Eating too many calories contributes to weight gain, but so does watching too much TV and sitting for hours in front of computers.

The Delaware General Health District recommends these healthy lifestyle basics for all Delaware County families. If you’re already battling weight, pick one or two of these basics to start and check out the documents at the right and the help links in the Obesity Resources section.
