Rise of Obesity in school children

The per capita income and increased GDP of the nation and the affluence has resulted after hard work and good planning by successive governments and the scores of welfare measures for BPL families has almost brought malnutrition in to very low levels .
Still in rural pockets of Bihar,Odesha, UP the malnutrition exists as seen in areas of endemic diseases and govt rushes for immediate fire fighting!
In general population in our states both in govt and private schools the children are found to be obese from smaller Classes to higher class students.
The pocket money, general affluence ,small family attention and the TV adds have resulted in consumption of high carb diets,sodas,junk food from school canteens .
Inspite of awareness programmes it is on the rise.
InUS junk food ,aerated drinks, high carb, high calorie food / snacks are banned by a government order.
It is time the central and state governments enact laws banning of such food items in school canteens/ cafeterias to safeguard the new generation from falling prey to diabetes ,hypertension and other obesity related disorders .Jaihind more
