Effects, Causes & Prevention of Childhood Obesity


Are you concerned about your child’s weight? Is he or she fairly sedentary? Do you worry about your family’s nutritional intake? Childhood obesity is a serious issue and is often associated with many physical, social and emotional problems. 

The following infographic, Childhood Obesity: Consequences, Causes & Prevention, provides a brief overview of the problem, its possible causes and ways to treat and/or prevent childhood obesity. Once you understand how dangerous the consequences may be, you will be better equipped to deal with the problem. You may want to begin with a visit to your child’s pediatrician. He or she can confirm the extent of the problem and offer helpful suggestions.

It’s never too late to help a child conquer obesity. The formula for prevention is simple: offer good, healthy food in moderate portions, reduce sedentary activities and work together as a family to achieve the goal of good health. Don’t expect immediate results; keeping obesity at bay can be a lifelong, yet rewarding journey. Keep reading to learn more.
