Children Nutrition

Pandemic of Obesity

After I was listening on TV S-SPAN panel with Agriculture and Nutrition Department of America about Pandemic of Obesity or Mal- Nutritional of the children.
THE World Health Organization declared obesity a global epidemic with
Major health implications.1 According to the 1999–2000 National Health and
Nutrition Examination Survey (www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhanes.htm), the prevalence
Of overweight or obesity in children and youth in the United States is over 45%,
A value that has tripled since the 1960s.The health implications of this epidemic
are profound. Insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, obstructive
Sleep apnea, nonalcoholic steat o hepatitis, poor self-esteem, and a lower
Health-related quality of life is among the co morbidities seen more commonly in
Affected children and youth in their metabolism



My opinion, as I have many years to work very close with children from 6 months to 13 years old. In those years I worked in a different levels of social economic of Pre-Scholl private for 3 years where the family are with high income, other 2 years I worked with a middle class social or middle income and for 4 years worked in a poverty level.  My observation all those years an this places I found  the same nutritions problem.
