Over 9 Million American Children Are Suffering From Obesity
Give Your Children The Gift Of Health This Holiday Season
America’s obesity crisis is not a secret. Over nine million children suffer from obesity in the US. The percentage of children who are obese is a public health issue. A few extra pounds do no suggest obesity, however they may indicate a tendency to gain weight easily and a need for changes in one’s diet and exercise. Generally a child is not considered obese until the weight is at least ten percent higher than what is recommended for the child’s body type and height. Most commonly, obesity begins in the childhood stages, between the ages of five and six and throughout adolescence. Experts say that if your child is obese by the age of thirteen they have an eighty percent chance of staying obese throughout their adulthood. It is projected that one in every nine children will end up diabetic. If those statistics don’t scare you, the statistics relating to teenagers and adults might. Approximately three hundred thousand adult deaths occur in the United States each year; the deaths are related to unhealthy dietary habits and deficiency in physical activity.
The problem is clear, parents need help. The percentage of overweight children in the US is growing. Many children are spending less time exercising and more time in front the television. How can parents compete with fast food chains, thirty nine cent tacos, four dollar pizzas, and the list goes on to electronic devises, video games, the internet, and everything else that is designed to keep your child’s attention for hours? It’s an American epidemic. The problem, proportion distortion; poor eating patterns are a major factor in the high rate of obesity among children.
