This is an unwanted gift of the 21st century. The problem of overweight is seen in children and youths because of various reasons like intake of plenty of junk food, lack of field games and exercise, continuous pressure of studies, tremendous attraction towards computer, TV and video games, etc. As per the report of WHO in 2011, there are more than 4 crore overweight children of less than 5 years of age in the world. This phenomenon has become a worldwide challenge because it is found not only in the affluent nations but also in countries with low and middle income. This has a tremendous effect on the general health, happiness and quality of life of children. More than 70% of these overweight children continue to remain the same even after they turn adult. Serious illnesses like coronary artery disease and diabetes get their roots in these children right from an early age.
