What Do You Think Causes Obesity In Children? Let's Talk

#Lifestyle


According to cdc.gov the number of obese children has doubled in size in the past 30 years. 

Generally, we all know that obesity isn't something that should be joked with considering the fact that it isn't health friendly.  Many say it is as a result of eating so many junk foods consumed by a child that causes obesity but I kind of disagree. 

Let me explain why. Yesterday, hubby and I went to buy boiled corn because it rained all day and we just needed to stroll around after being indoors almost all through the day. So, we stopped by to buy boiled corn and
we saw an obese little girl who can't be more than 10 years old .

Now from the look of things there are chances that this precious little girl may not have the luxury of eating so many junk foods. So is this little girl who may not be privileged to eat as many junk foods as she wants obese because of the said junk foods?


The thing is, if we don't know or are not aware of the main causes of obesity, we may never really know how to prevent or reduce it especially when it comes to our children and younger ones. 

So beautiful people, let's inspire others by sharing your views on this topic. Even if we can't reduce obesity in the lives of children all around the world, we can atleast become more aware of it and also make help in making sure the statics rates don't increase further by also educating our friends, loved ones and be around us on the information we will learning from this topic.

Please share your views. There isn't a right or wrong answer. We are all here to learn and inspire ourselves and others.

The most common causes are genetic factors, lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating patterns, or a combination of these factors. Only in rare cases is being overweight caused by a medical condition such as a hormonal problem.

Obese children are at risk for a number of conditions, including:

High cholesterol
High blood pressure
Early heart disease
Diabetes
Bone problems
Skin conditions such as heat rash, fungal infections, and acne

It's mostly water retention. Children should avoid salt and frizzy drinks at the early stages of their life
