Childhood obesity is one of the most serious challenges of the 21st century. While a person’s genes do influence weight, it is possible for the kids can maintain a healthy weight if they eat right and exercise. The Causes 👉Genetics: Obesity can be hereditary, thereby affecting the child at a very early age. 👉 Unhealthy lifestyle: Snacking in front of the television for hours on end, haywire sleep cycles, bingeing on junk food – these are some of the habits that are bound to set the child up for failure. 👉 Eating disorders: Anorexia nervosa, emotional eating etc. How to win the battle? 👉Lead by example: If you want to inculcate healthy habits in your child, then first you must practice those habits yourself. 👉Get moving: Involve your child in physical activities he/she enjoys 👉 Hydration: Encourage your child to drink plenty of water throughout the day; this will teach him/her how to differentiate between the sensation of hunger and thirst. 👉 Small modifications: Restricting sugar completely might make the child sneak it in behind your back, so try to incorporate mindful eating habits instead. Prepare a healthier variation of your child’s favorite treats. 👉Monitor screen time: Limit the time scheduled for digital activities to 60 minutes/day Do check out the book INFS HEALTH SERIES for ADOLESCENTS by S.Q.U.A.T.S expert Aditya Mahajan.
