Childhood obesity is a major problem now a days. It is time that children are taught the dangers of being overweight. Parents have a major role in educating children against obesity.It is always better to teach the children healthy eating habits. But today it is seen that parents do not try to teach good eating habits but just stuff their children with all bad eating habits.

This really is a problem. I have a 10 yr old sister who is overweight, bordering obesity. We put her on a diet but she begs for food at night. Sometimes my mom gives in and lets her eat some more but we try our best to make her stick to her diet. She is very active and is always outside playing. We dont know why her metabolism is so slow.

That's true. I agree! Obesity starts when they were young. What do their parent is eating that's what they children will do the same with their family. Then all of them are obese. Not really all people are like these. Instead of teaching the children to do some physical activities they just buy computers. Buying al the food in the grocery whether it is healthy or not.

I do agree! Also,I heard that it is not good to let them eat and watch tv at the same time. Don't know how true that is,but it makes sense to me.
