Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is increasingly found in the modern times. Moreover TV watching is an important factor that contributes to obesity among kids.  The children tend to consume more snacks while watching TV.  the consequence of whic is high blood pressure, higher cholesterol levels, diabetes, sleeping problems.  The physical activity in children reduces drastically due to TV addiction. THe calories consumed are not burnt.

Parents should resort to providing more healthier snacks to their childrend like cut vegetables instead of a pack of chips.  A glass of fresh juice instead of a can of aerated drink.  Parents also should regulate the portions of meals given to the children and encourage regular exercise routine.  TV watching should be limited to lass than an hour a day.
