Study shows parents with overweight children in denial
A study in America has found that half of parents who have a child who is classed as overweight are in ‘denial.’ They either believe that their children are slimmer than they really are or dismiss their weight as ‘puppy fat’ which they’ll lose when they grow older.
Another major study this week found that obesity isn’t something that strikes in our later years, instead it takes hold when we’re young. Their research found that a third of children who were overweight when they were in kindergarten (aged 5 and 6) were still overweight by the eighth grade (aged 13 to 15), and all of the children who were obese when they started education were still obese when they entered their teens.
It seems that many parents simply aren’t taking their children’s weight issues seriously, but we know that child obesity is serious and actually the way we are as children paves the way for our adult life – many of our members tell us that they’ve struggled with their weight since childhood. This means that if something isn’t done about child obesity levels, we’re likely to see even more adults classed as overweight in years to come. The tide must be turned and that means helping children to lead healthy lifestyles as well as adults.
At Slimming World we give real, practical healthy eating and activity advice that helps individuals to make manageable and sustainable changes for their whole family so they can lose weight and keep it off for life – and help their family to be healthier too. It’s vitally important that people are given compassionate and ongoing support to make those changes and keep them up – even when the going gets tough. Slimming World does all of these things via its Food Optimising eating plan, Body Magic activity program and unique support system.
Many children will go through their school life feeling uncomfortable and out of place. Many will lack confidence and are reluctant to take part in sports, which leaves them isolated or, worse still, bullied because of their size. And all too frequently they become adults who develop both physical and mental health problems that impact on their daily life. At Slimming World we want to stop people ever having these experiences or having to feel like this and help them to live happier, healthier and longer.
