Child obesity is quicly becoming a universal problem
Worldwide child obesity is becoming a problem. There is child obesity in America and there is even child obesity in Australia. It can happen anywhere.
Sometimes it is diet choices that are the problem.
Too often, fast food or frozen meals substitute for a quality meal. Not only fast food, but sugary treats are nowadays way too common. What used to be a rare treat has now become a daily if not hourly intake.
Diet is not the only culprit.
Lack of exercise, not just for the adults, but for the children is another cause of child obesity. Video games have replaced much physical activity that is needed to burn off excess calories children consume. The children are not the ones to blame. We, as adults have set a bad example.
Child obesity can lead to some serious health problems.
Type 2 diabetes, which used to be seen in older adults, is now becoming more common in school aged children. High blood pressure is another problem that can be triggered by child obesity.
