Doua puncte de vedere despre obezitate

Iata cum stradania parintilor de a-i tine pe copii in siguranta, in casa, poate fi si una dintre cauzele obezitatiii:

Two thirds of parents said they thought children were getting fatter because of safety concerns about them playing outside and getting exercise without supervision.

A survey of 2,000 parents also found that just one fifth of families eat a meal together at least once a week and 80 per cent of parents admitted their child is not eating the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Almost three quarters of parents admitted giving in to pester power for unhealthy foods to make their lives easier [....]

Child Psychologist, Dr Richard Woolfson said: “There is no doubt that play patterns have changed dramatically in recent years. Whereas energetic free-play outdoors used to be the typical activity in childhood, such opportunities are rare now, largely because of parental fears about their child’s safety. Sadly, this has a restrictive effect on a child’s development, with less physical play, less exploratory play and even less social play. (intregul articol aici)

Parents need to model self-control as part of teaching it to their children, and doing so can be a valuable weapon in the battle against childhood obesity.

The study, (released today by the University of Michigan’s and appearing in the April issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association’s Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine) which looked at a group of 805 children at age four and checked back on them at age 11, found that children who are able to delay gratification are less likely to be overweight

In the study, a group of 4-year-olds was asked to choose candy, animal crackers or pretzels as their preferred food and left alone with two plates of different quantities of the food.

They could eat a larger portion of chosen food if they waited until the examiner returned. If they could not wait until the examiner returned, they could ring a bell to summon the examiner back into the room, at which time they could eat the small quantity.

Almost half (47%) of the 805 children failed the test, either by ringing the bell before a seven-minute waiting period elapsed, spontaneously beginning to eat the food, becoming distressed, going to the door or calling for a parent or the examiner.

Children who had difficulty delaying gratification were about 30% more likely to be overweight by age 11 than those who could delay gratification, says study coauthor Dr. Julie Lumeng, a developmental and behavioral pediatrician at the University of Michigan Health System. (de aici)
