Childhood Obesity & Nutrition

Childhood obesity is one of the major public health crises nationally and internationally. It is the condition where the child put on weight above the normal weight which he/she must be for their height and age. It is a serious medical condition that has impact on both physical and psychological condition of a child. The effects of childhood obesity can persist well into adulthood and more likely to develop several non-communicable diseases at younger age. So, parents should help children develop healthy eating habits, stay active and reduce sedentary time. Proper nutrition services are important when it comes to children, since they are habituating life-long patterns that will be very difficult for them to break later and in preventing disabilities as well as in the treatment of chronic illness. Poor nutrition leads to an increased risk for developing health conditions such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and even hearing loss.
