Obesity in Children is a condition where excess body fat negatively affects a child’s health or well being.
A child can be over-weight, so don’t over-feed your child. Don’t think a chubby child is a sign of good living. Over pampering a child with too much food can make the child obese and other children at school will make fun of your child and probably call him/her fat. Which may affect the child emotionally.
Encourage your obese child to eat healthy. Eat what you will want your child to eat to be fit. For example, If you take ice cream and tell your daughter not to, your daughter will think you don’t like her
