This week, a comprehensive study published in the Lancet revealed that the
number of obese children, aged five to 19, worldwide has skyrocketed
tenfold over the past 40 years.

.

The study, led by the Imperial College of London in collaboration with the
World Health Organization, involved height and weight data on nearly 130
million people. While childhood obesity rates are on the rise in low- and
middle-income countries, the rise appears to have levelled off, at least
temporarily, in high-income countries such as Canada.

.

Good news perhaps, but our national childhood obesity numbers remain
dismal and alarming. According to Statistics Canada, in 2015 nearly 15 per
cent of boys and 10 per cent of girls  aged five to 17  were considered
obese, numbers that have nearly tripled since the 1970s.

.

Kids with obesity are at a higher risk for asthma, sleep apnea, type 2
diabetes and high blood pressure. They're also more likely to be bullied
than their peers who are at a healthy weight.

.

Obesity in childhood also increases the likelihood of becoming an obese
adult and developing the health problems that come with it  diabetes,
heart disease and cancer.

.

As a parent, it's not always easy to recognize that your child has a
weight problem. Kids grow at different rates and changes in body fat
differ among girls and boys.

.

Ask your family pediatrician to review your child's growth charts with
you. At annual check-ups, they should assess your child's body mass index
(BMI) for age.
