It cannot be denied that childhood obesity is on the rise. Chew on the
following statistics sourced from the Indian Journal of Endocrinology and
Metabolism :

.

- Somewhere between 5.74 per cent and 8.82 per cent of schoolchildren in
India are obese.

.

- In urban south India, 21.4 per cent boys and 18.5 per cent girls aged
13-18 are either overweight or obese.

.

Worldwide, in the year 2000, the International Obesity Task Force (IOTF)
declared about 10 per cent of children aged 5-17 (about 155 million) were
overweight, out of which two to three per cent (30 to 45 million) were
obese.

.

Among the reasons for childhood obesity were ubiquitous processed foods,
fast foods, and foods that don't unfortunately love your child back as
much as your child loves them. Add that to the fact outdoor activities
have been replaced by digital ones, and you have a scenario where children
are eating more calories than they can expend. But while we'll get into
ways of getting your child have better nutrition in subsequent articles, I
just wanted to use this space to clear some misconceptions surrounding
children and weight gain:

.

Chubby baby isn't always a healthy one

.

There's this notion that a chubby baby is a healthy one. But a baby only
needs so much nutrition for growth and development, and the more fat a
child stores, the greater the tendency to store fat as the child gets
older. Keep checking in with your paediatrician to make sure the baby
isn't biting off more than he can chew.

.

An overweight child is prone to being an overweight adult
Overweight children are far more likely to grow up to be overweight
adults. Comprehensive studies over the years have made clear the linkage
between obesity in children and corresponding obesity in adults. Likewise,
research has also shown the link between overweight children and sick
adults.
