Overweight & obesity in children
More and more children are overweight. Excessive sitting, inactivity and a wrong diet play a crucial role in this. Overweight means that your child is overweight and has too much body fat. A BODPOD measurement immediately and accurately shows how much body fat it is, and what health risks your child runs as a result.
Being overweight has many disadvantages for a child, such as shame, insecurity, being bullied and difficulty moving. Being overweight at a young age increases the chance that someone will also suffer from obesity later on. An overweight child is also more likely to develop high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and joint problems later in life.
