More and more children are obese these days.
Their obese condition could be traced to eating too much unhealthy food and having a sedentary lifestyle.
According to UKM Medical Centre senior consultant paediatrician and paediatric endocrinologist Prof. Dr Wu Loo Ling, “The children’s bad dietary habits of eating burgers, nuggets, fried chicken and carbonated drinks are contributing factors”.
Long hour of homework, watching television and playing computer games added to the problem.
Parents, kindly take note that obesity affects the patient’s vital organ like the heart, kidneys, nerves and eyes.
Love your children? Do not feed them “junk food”.
