then why are only some children from such social circumstances obese

There is an often quoted link between poverty and obesity,Prada outlet, especially obesity caused by convenience junk food and sedentary lifestyle,louboutin shoes. It is also true that obese children are more likely to have obese parents. Whilst not always the case,truereligion-back, the old saying 'you are what you eat' tends to extend to families not just individuals and children.
Having watched several documentary programmes on people struggling to control obesity I wonder if there is a link between parental intelligence and obesity. The demographic incidence of childhood obesity corroborates this. You find it more prevalent in areas where the general educational achievement is low. Usually poverty in the locality is cited as the underlying cause, but it is really? If that were so, then why are only some children from such social circumstances obese? Some eat healthily and take regular sports and exercise, and have ideal BMIs, despite being in identical or worse economic circumstances than obese children. The difference lies with the competence and commitment of their parent/s,Celine bag. Childhood obesity is all-too-often due to poor parenting,true religion outlet. The inability to say ‘no’ to a child’s demands or take the time and effort to encourage healthy eating, sports and physical exercise are very evident in these cases. It seems striking that, in the more extreme cases of childhood obesity, the consumption of grossly excessive amounts of poor quality junk food is somehow seen as natural parental love and care. But that is a gross distortion (in more than one sense) of what parental love and responsibility entails.
It is often stated that the cost of a healthy diet is a prohibiting factor - and that it costs more to 'eat healthily'. I do not agree. Convenience junk food is very cheap, but the cost of eating excessive amounts of junk food and snacks is more than eating a proportional balanced healthy diet with fresh unprocessed ingredients. It does takes much more time and commitment to eat healthily - food needs to be planned against a budget, purchased, prepared and cooked.
I’ve never heard of health minister ‘Anna Soubry’, but linking poverty AND poor parenting to childhood obesity seems downright obvious. I would add that poor parenting is more a root cause than poverty; it’s just easy to blame poverty because it is abstract and more politically correct to do so. Right,I needed to be completely and utterly neutral, shoot me down in flames folks….
