Childhood Obesity
Ruining Today, Risking Tomorrow!

Childhood obesity has taken a toll on our children lives. India is getting more than 10 million cases a year, which is enormous.

Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is one of the most serious concerns and a public challenge today. The numbers are on the rise and don’t seem to stop at any point. The problem is not only present in India, but it is global, affecting many middle and high-class families who binge eat very often. The prevalence of childhood obesity has reached an alarming state.

Overweight and obese children are more likely to stay obese in their adulthood and develop diseases like type-2 diabetes, hypertension, and other cardiovascular diseases at a young age. Type-2 diabetes and other conditions are preventable if you focus on reducing the weight and address obesity at its early stage itself.
