Obesity in Children

” I am Am just chubby, not fat”, ”I need to eat to feel good”, just a few of the deceptive ideologies that cloak the minds of our youth today as they drown themselves in the ever intoxicating world of Sodas, Pizzas and Turkey.

Our kids are getting fatter and fatter. Studies show that an uncomfortably huge percentage of our kids are obese. Internet, Video games, and the availability of fast food even on home delivery create the conducive environment for them to culture this habits where they just ‘eat’ and add unhealthy weight which has devastating health effects. They would rather do this than have fun outside, run and play energy consuming games which positively contribute to their well being both physically and emotionally. Truly this sedentary lifestyle has dire consequences.

Issues ranging from depression to high blood pressure and diabetes all stem from this. Kids also find themselves faced with the disheartening challenge of ridicule from their friend and classmates due to their overweight bodies and this, in turn, has negative psychological effects.
