Two categories of Kids

Today we can devide children in two categories largely . Those who donot eat and those who over eat . You will see all parents especially moms complaining that their childs do not want to eat daily meals . On the one hand kids as old as five to seven years are dependent on parents to be fed . And that too they take unwillingly .They will either refuse to eat or just take one morsel as long as one hour to swallow .

On the other hand there are those who just go on eating and eating . They are fortunate(?) to have everything they want on their beck and call and pampering parents to support them for eating more and more . But times come when parents even start worrying about their eating habit when the kids start gaining weight at an unusual pace . At this point of time obessity is a greater disease in India than any other disease . It has been gaining reputation of the fastest spreading none-infectious epidemic . Because obessity begets many other diseases like diebetis , high blood pressure etc . Let us forget about those starving ones for a moment .

In a survey , conducted not too long ago it is shown that almost 80% school students in the schools in Delhi are obess . Children refuse to control their over eating habit saying that all their classmates are over-weight . So why should they bother . To add to the problem there are all the kinds of processed food which add more calories that nutrition to the body . Almost all parents today love to enjoy their hassle free dinner at outside home . Because this too has become a trend in cities .

So there are very few kids left who eat healthy . Not much , not less , just a healthy food habit .Will parents learn to take the responsibilty of rearing childs in the right way .

    These days” kids are more attracted towards junk food. The parents are encouraging them bcoz if the parents say no, the kid will say that my friends eating and why should I not eat it. At this juncture the parents should stop encouraging the kid and tell him the dangerous effects of eating junk food. Generally parents don’t do that and scold or beat the child which is wrong action in my view. Parents should teach the kid healthy habits like excercise, sleep in time and eat proper healthy food. These tips are easy to say but implementation is what matter’s more…
