Final Answer :
Explanation :
Limiting screen time can promote physical activity and reduce sedentary behavior, which can help with weight management in children. Keeping a food diary may be helpful, but it is not the best initial recommendation. Drinking 100 percent fruit juice may contribute to excessive calorie intake, and drinking whole milk may also contribute to excess calorie intake and may not be necessary for a four-year-old child. Cognitive behavioral therapy may be helpful in the treatment of obesity, but it may not be the best initial recommendation for a child of this age.
