Childhood Obesity Diploma
The 21st century faces numerous challenges in public health of which Childhood Obesity is considered as one of the serious ones. Adult bone mass density is determined during one’s childhood and adolescence and any problems occurring then could adversely affect bone health in the adult stage. This Childhood Obesity Diploma discusses in detail the problem of childhood obesity and what measures can be taken for its prevention and management. Presently, approximately one in about three children in the UK are either obese or overweight when they leave primary school. Finding the cause for why the children become overweight and then tailoring effective programmes based on evidence to target the causes is vital if the trend is to be reversed. Some important factors discussed in the Childhood Obesity Diploma Course are physical activity, childhood nutrition and psychology. Along with obese and overweight children, their families must also be given care, support and good advice. When starting primary school, almost one in about five children are overweight and this number rises to one in three by the time they begin secondary school. It is estimated that, by 2022, almost half the children would be either obese or overweight. There is a high likelihood that obese children tend to become obese adults and apart from causing serious health problems, could also result in lower self-esteem and perception of physical appearance. Obesity, by nature, increases the risk of various health conditions that include high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke and certain cancers and prematurely increases the risk of death. The NHS is already spending more than £5.1 billion in a year to treat obesity related conditions. This Childhood Obesity Diploma Course shows parents and childcare practitioners how an improvement in health can be spurred in children and adolescents.
