Combating Obesity:

Manageable disease through awareness.

Can lead to Diabetes, Heart Disease, & Hypertension.

Educating your children in how to choose the right food to consume is as important as teaching your children to stay away from drugs. Somali Youth United believes that proper nutrition awareness can decrease the obesity epidemic facing our children.

Watch your diet, lower calories intake, walk 30 minutes daily.

Increase fruit and Vegetable intake. Somali community eats meat and paste and rice daily, we should mix our meals, meat one day, fish the next and so forth.

Somali Youth United is available for any questions, and is here to provide assistance to get you the right answers to any health questions. We will forward your questions to local doctors and health professionals. Please email us or call us.
