India is experiencing a growing epidemic of diabetes, coronary heart disease (CHD), and bone and joint related health concerns. And the growing trend is that this epidemic is starting early in life-childhood. Doctors are reporting more and more lifestyle related and chronic conditions in childhood which were previously restricted to middle aged population.
Childhood obesity is one of the single largest growing concerns among parents with more and more children suffering from it. Young children have little or no physical activity and are consuming large amounts of processed food leading to various ailments. Majority of their lifestyle is sedentary which consists of sitting in front of iPads, laptops, television, or video games. Immediate action needs to be taken as studies envisage that most children who are overweight may grow up to be overweight or obese adults, putting them at greater risk for health problems associated with obesity. Childhood is a very important part of us maturing as individuals and most things learned at this age tend to stay for the rest of our lives.
