Childhood obesity – 3 pages

Child obesity is a medical condition that affects both teenagers and children, resulting in having too much fat stored within the body and negatively affecting the child.  There are many factors that contribute to childhood obesity in America.  One of the key things is that only 2% of children in America get healthy foods. That means that 2% or less consume a well-balanced diet while 98% or more children do not receive proper nutrition. Obesity in children contributes to reduced life expectancy, and there is a need to develop better eating habits among the children to rescue cases of the chronic trend. To address this problem, I went to the CINAHL database under the nursing database options. I then conducted a search for “childhood obesity” and “prevention” to obtain evidence-based results for this topic. There were thousands of articles to choose from so I randomly browsed the options until I found one that would pique my interest. The most consistently mentioned intervention for the prevention of childhood obesity was nutrition and exercise. More specifically, the nutritional patterns of the parents were more likely to indicate the risk of childhood obesity. For this problem, my intervention will be a nutritional training program that is family based coupled with structured family exercise. Eating behaviors include poor diets where the child might be eating foods rich in fats and sugar such as fast foods, particularly snacks (Suarez, 2020). Calories should be limited for sugary foods and those rich in fats (Filgueiras et al., 2019).
