  • Yes and I did. The biggest thing any parent can do to help prevent it is make your kids get exercise, go out and play everyday and DONT let them get fat. Dont buy junk food and they wont eat junk.

  • Do they eat the rainbow (not talking skittles) and 7-13 servings of a variety of fruits and vegetables EVERYDAY?

  • Sounds like you're trying to sell something here.

    Preventing diabetes is simple. Cut out the stupid sugary sweets and give the child fruit and veggies. Stop giving them sodas and candy at a young age as a way to "shut them up" so you can do whatever.
