September is National Childhood Obesity Month – we have chosen to help raise awareness and provide our readers with a chance to learn more about this severe health condition that affects roughly one in three children in the United States.
Aside from the mental and emotional downsides to childhood obesity, such as social isolation, low self-esteem, and bullying, children with obesity are at higher risk for other chronic health conditions. These conditions include but are not limited to: asthma, sleep apnea, bone and joint problems, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Obesity, combined with these various issues can lead to lifelong trauma, physical, and mental health problems into adulthood.
As a previously obese child transformed into a healthy and fit adult, I can speak for myself and others – the journey back to a healthy weight is a long and arduous one. Weight is more difficult to lose, maintaining a diet becomes the least of your worries on top of the usual responsibilities of adulthood. Save your kids while they are still kids!
Today’s children are affected by obesity due to a myriad of factors – the primary factors being lack of physical activity, lack of sleep, easy access to high calorie food and sugary beverages, lack of access to healthier food. Parents can prevent their child from this condition by being aware of their growth, providing nutritious, low-calorie foods, making sure they drink enough water, and engaging them in physical activity.
Together, we can combat the obesity epidemic and work towards a solution. Tell us your story #childhoodobesitymonth
