Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is a condition where surplus body fat has an adverse impact on a child’s wellbeing. It has a series of factors that often act in combination. Though both-parent obesity is a important factor for childhood obesity, psychological factors and the child’s body type right from the birth matters. Children are also influenced and influence by modern-day food habits i.e. energy-dense cheap foods with less energy that ultimately affects their health. Over the past three decades, the incidence of childhood obesity has almost tripled and is now a major public health problem, globally. Obesity is the prime cause for diabetes and many researchers has proved that type 2 diabetes has a important relationship with obesity. Obese children are twice as likely to develop diabetes when compared with the children who are of normal weight.
