Childhood Obesity

Childhood Obesity

It’s no secret that childhood obesity is on the rise. In fact, according to a recent study, the number of obese children has increased by millions in just the last year. This rise in childhood obesity is the largest single-year increase since the programme began 15 years ago and highlights the worldwide rising trend for obesity among children and adolescents.

The reasons for this increase are numerous, but some of the most common include a lack of physical activity, poor diet, and increased screen time. Whatever the cause, it’s clear that something needs to be done to address this growing problem. And while there are many approaches that can be taken, one of the most important is simply to raise awareness and encourage parents and children to make healthy choices.
