Obesity Among Children a Threat
This hurdle is growing at an alarming rate, and robust strategies must be put in place as early as possible. Parents should understand their duty to offer their children better ontogeny by improving their eating habits. You should encourage children to prefer home-cooked food to the outside.
To reduce obesity, excessive use of technological devices should be limited to making children aware of their health through outdoor play. They achieve physical and mental growth by eliminating the threat of obesity.
Schools and colleges should limit the sale of junk food, which contains more cholesterol and has health implications. It leads to attacks by not only making children morbidly obese, but also by many other health risks such as cardiovascular problems and sleep apnea.
In addition, a recent WHO survey showed that 8% of the annual death rate among teenagers is the sole cause of obesity. Childhood obesity predisposes to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, liver and kidney disease, and reproductive dysfunction. This condition also increases the risk of obesity in adulthood.
Most worryingly, this menace leads to life-threatening conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep disorders, cancer, and other conditions. Some of the other conditions would include liver disease and early puberty.
Nevertheless, no problem is insurmountable. It can also be cured by some strict measures. First, schools can play a large role in preventing childhood obesity by providing a safe and supportive environment with policies and practices that support healthy behaviors. Second, parents at home can help prevent their children from becoming overweight by changing the way the family eats and exercises together. Children learn best by example, so parents should lead by example by leading a healthy lifestyle with improved habits.
Many children don’t exercise because they spend time in non-mobile activities, such as using computers, playing video games, or watching TV. Technology has a major impact on children’s activity. The researchers provided a technology questionnaire to 4,561 children aged 14, 16 and 18 years. They prefer to watch TV and play indoors
Parents, school and society alike.
Apparently no drugs are currently approved for the treatment of childhood obesity, but it may be uprooted if everyone focuses more on children’s health by raising them in a healthy family environment with lots of care and appropriateness for their vibrant future free of physiological and mental diseases arising from obesity.
