How to Face Children Obesity

Based on the survey result in USA recently, approximately 16% of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years were obese. And according to a 2008 article in the Journal of the American of Medical Association, the prevalence of obesity among US children and adolescents increased significantly between 1980 and 2004.

This means there were negative tendencies towards overweight that will cause problems and diseases related in years upcoming. Kids will also face medical, emotional, and social consequences . In reality no kid likes to be made fun of and overweight children can be the target of peer pressure and ridicule. Extra pounds can lead to low self-esteem and social problems, not to mention high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and orthopedic problems.

A common parental complaint is that their children spend too much time indoors with video games rather than outside getting exercise in the fresh air. Older teens, who always appear to be trying to get out of the house, may not be getting enough aerobic exercise outside of school. Their thumbs may be in great shape from all that texting but what about the rest of their physique?

What can a parent do to insure their child is getting enough exercise – and the right kind of exercise? One thing you can do is set a good example by adhering to a healthy diet and getting enough daily exercise yourself.
