Parents’ Ready Reckoner: Stepping Stones to Ward off Child Obesit

Obese children are becoming common sight, though not a desirable one! Infact, obesity is being thought of on the lines of an epidemic. // Not surprising with all the high-calorie fast foods and soft drinks that are omnipresent, and part of regular telecast on television.

Nationally recognized expert on child obesity, Dr. Goutham Rao, has risen to the occasion with a practical information guide on “In Child Obesity: A Parent's Guide to a Fit, Trim, and Happy Child.” This is an insight by the author who has sought the guidance of the latest and best medical evidence available that can assist parents in helping the child surmount this health problem.

Dr. Rao has provided information about the five main causes for obesity among children: soft drinks ("liquid candy"); fast food; television and video games; the inactivity of youngsters both at school and at play; and the changing patterns of family behavior, which have led to irregular meal times and the over-consumption of "convenience" foods.

The latter part of the book talks of a practical approach to maintaining a healthy weight that even included altering the eating behavior. According to him, there are no short-cuts to treating childhood obesity. Perhaps the silver lining on a fat dark cloud is obesity can be reversed, if the children are encouraged and guided to be trim, fit and happy.

Goutham Rao, M.D. (Pittsburgh, PA), is the clinical director of the Center for Weight Management and Wellness at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine, and the author of Primary Care Management: Cases and Discussions, among many other publications.
