Therefore, parents and doctors should address this health concern seriously with no room for delay.

As per the World Health Organization (WHO), child obesity is one of the most critical public health issues of the 21st century. The latest advances in the treatment of obesity in children say that a multi-disciplinary weight-management approach is likely to help. Therefore, this program should include the following:

  • Educate children on the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables

Incorporating these steps into the daily routine can help with the treatment of obesity in kids. Also, both parents and doctors should work together to help obese kids lose weight without missing the adequate amount of nutrition needed by their growing bodies.
