Obesity On The Rise In Children

Childhood Obesity Growing Globally

A staggering 41 million children ages 5 and under are overweight or obese globally and that number is going to almost double in the next 10 years according to the latest studies.

The availability of sugary foods and drinks is one of the factors that may be causing this increase in young children’s obesity. Obesity rates seem to be increased in both low & middle-income families. These high obesity rates seem to be greatly increasing in both Asia and Africa.

Low-income families are both at the greatest risk of obesity and the most responsive to price change. In response to this, officials are calling for an increased tax on sugary liquids and foods to help combat these trends.

In China, India, and Brazil sales of sugary soft drinks have more then quadrupled over the last decade. Middle-income families are also buying an increase of packaged and highly processed foods worldwide.

Recommendations:

  • Tax sugary, unhealthy foods
  • Limit unhealthy foods marketing
  • Promote healthy foods
  • Make healthy foods more affordable
  • Promote physical activity
  • Make health education a priority

Who can help:

  • Health advocates such as
    • Chiropractors
    • Acupuncturists
    • Naturopaths
    • Dieticians
    • Ayurveda practitioners
    • Life/health coaches
    • Personal trainers

If you want to live a life of health and wellness please seek out these professionals to give you the foundation to a lifestyle that epitomizes health. The foods and drinks that were made to be an occasional treat have become daily staples in our lives.
