Childhood Obesity: A Growing Pandemic

Munish Rastogi, Dolly Rastogi

Abstract :

Child obesity has emerged as a global public health concern, with a significant increase in prevalence over the past few decades. This review article aims to provide an in-depth analysis of the multifactorial causes, detrimental consequences, and potential interventions for child obesity. We explore the complex interplay of genetic, environmental, social, and behavioral factors contributing to the development of obesity in children. Additionally, we examine the short- and long-term physical and psychological health consequences, emphasizing the importance of early intervention and prevention strategies. Finally, we discuss evidence-based interventions, including lifestyle modification, school-based programs, and community-driven efforts, in order to address this growing epidemic. By synthesizing current knowledge and highlighting gaps in research, this review underscores the urgent need for collaborative efforts among stakeholders to promote healthy lifestyles and prevent child obesity.
