The neglect comes in many forms. Now it seems that extends to the dining table. As the national past, poor eating habits and increase in diseases such as obesity and childhood diabetes is part of the carelessness of the parents. New research shows that children in care by nurses and members of the extended family is eating the food faster and are more prone to bad habits to deal with only their mother.
“Studies have shown that healthy eating habits, which consist of a first form of life forever – and, unfortunately, on the contrary, Dr. Mohammed Miqdady, director of the department of gastroenterology sons of Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Abu Dhabi, has said. Healthy lifestyle early in a child’s life to prevent children from falling into the overweight or obese later and to protect their illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and so on. ”
The seemingly never-ending spread of fast food outlets is often blamed for the bad eating culture that many children embrace in this day and age. But as we’ve long advocated on these pages, it is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that their children are not reliant on junk buy
A healthy lifestyle does not stop at providing nutritious meals, but extends to regular workouts as well. It is a regime that parents are far more qualified to provide, not to mention more responsible for. Children increasingly spend time away from home, and in this regard schools have a big part to play in promoting healthy habits.
Two years ago, a three-month publicity drive – The Fat Truth – was spearheaded by the Ministry of Health and Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, the wife of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The campaign left doctors and teachers calling for all children to be regularly weighed at school to help prevent obesity and diabetes. Such initiatives educate not only the children, but the parents too.
Obesity is strongly linked to depression of the child. A parent does not take into account the health of their children is important not to consider their happiness. Keeping a watchful eye on the child’s feeding, with more quality time with family and meals, will go a long way to ensure both scenarios are avoided.
