Our eBook, Understanding Childhood Obesity, is about identifying problems, causes and helpful insights to manage and improve this overwhelming crisis we face.
Is your child suffering from childhood obesity problems?
Implementing these strategies can help to empower yourself and your child and take control of childhood obesity.
Did you know, as of 2019, an estimated 150 million children in the world were diagnosed with obesity? This number is expected to increase to 206 million by 2025.
As parents, we make every effort to provide our children with the very best food and nutrition, allowing them to grow into strong, healthy, and productive young adults that we can all be proud of.
But, the task is not as easy as it sounds. Picking the kids up from school, making breakfast, and preparing lunches, all while holding down a job, can make the task seem impossible.
Childhood obesity has become a global problem and can severely harm the health of your child.
Children who suffer from obesity are at risk of numerous mental and physical health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, restless sleep, asthma, liver disease. Then there is the mental health concern no parent wants their child to face, bullying. Bullying can lead our children to shy away from sporting activities and develop low self-esteem, and in some cases, even depression.
It's a scary thought that childhood obesity can be the root cause of many physical and mental health issues. For this reason, we've created a book that details exactly how to take control of childhood obesity.
