Case Discussion of Obesity in Children

Obesity among children has reached pandemic proportions in both developed and developing nations. Childhood obesity and being overweight are known to negatively affect both physical and mental health. Children who are overweight or obese are more likely to be overweight into maturity and to experience non-communicable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease earlier in life. It is thought that obesity is an illness with several underlying causes because the process underlying its development is not entirely understood. The global rise in obesity prevalence is mostly due to environmental variables, lifestyle choices, and cultural context.
