Childhood obesity constantly increasing even though some previous reports claim that obesity in teens and children has remained stable or is decreasing, the study found no proof for reduction between 1999 and 2016. Contrastingly, there was a sharp rise in grave obesity among children ages 2 to 5.

Asheley Skinner, a health services researcher and associate professor at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, who was first author of the study said that some years ago there was some positive proof that obesity rates falling off for preschool-aged children. Regrettably our statistics observing the similar age group portrays that this reduction seems to be showing the opposite trend.

This is not astonishing but is definitely dispiriting. The efforts are seemingly falling short of the desired result of improving the health of child and are not reaching across the country. We will be required to revamp admission to nutritious food and physical commotion. It should be carried out in such a way that acknowledges that parents possess exacting lives.

Obesity refers to a person possessing an enormous amount of body fat and can increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and even some cancers. The proportion of children and teens perturbed by obesity has more than tripled since the 1970s, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is approximated that nearly one in five children and teens are obese. But obesity is not just an American problem.
