A large number of responsible parents are slowly waking up to the fact that the dangers of childhood obesity are a clear and present danger and they are looking for ways how to prevent it. Childhood obesity is an epidemic which has gained momentum during the past couple of decades. Children are getting to be more overweight and thus they are suffering from weight related diseases like diabetes, hypertension, kidney failure, heart problems, high cholesterol, and even high blood pressure.
This danger is coming to light because recent statistics show that one out of every four child is suffering from obesity. You are going to be surprised to know that childhood obesity is caused because of bad eating habits and undisciplined children eating junk food without any restrictions from parents or other responsible adults. Apart from that, the sedentary lifestyle being followed by a large number of children who are not encouraged to exercise but are allowed to sit for hours and hours in front of a TV or a computer is responsible for childhood obesity.
