You are currently viewing CHILDHOOD OBESITY & ADULT LIFE BY DR. AMRITA BASU #BlogchatterEbook


Our definition of being healthy is somehow distorted. Unless the child is chubby with squishy cheeks, we do not think the mother, is paying enough attention, right? We have heard many grannies and aunties analysing a mother’s love, care, and attention by the health of the baby. But let me break their heart, an obese child is not healthy. He may have many other complications from developing the necessary motor skill to lifestyle problems. And its not only me but even a well-qualified doctor is here to tell us that child obesity is here, and if we do not pay enough attention and take necessary steps it’s here to stay.

Its not the problem in the western world only, it is very much in India. With junk food becoming mainstream, mobile games and binge-watching being part of kid’s lifestyle too. The problem of child obesity needs to be tackled widely.

My Take:

This book is part of a series about nutrition secrets, and this is book 5. It talks in detail about how and what about Childhood obesity and what aftereffects is has on adult life.

Obesity in a child can lead to poor emotional health. Lower self-esteem as well as they have to, face bullying on many occasions. The bullying is not only from kids their age but also from judging and immature adults too.

Some amazing Secrets that doctor amrita shares in this book are about the child’s food preferences. We blame kids for being fussy eaters, but their food preferences are developed in womb. So pregnant moms must eat wisely. Else don’t blame your kids later.

Another such Secret is the reason why mothers should not eat food with strong flavours during breast feeding. Grab the book if you want to unravel it.

There are many reasons given why childhood obesity occurs. Its due to sedentary behaviour, more screen time, lack of exercise and even due to emotional eating. It’s time we must pay attention to kid’s mental health too.

The best part of this book is it tells you what the problem is, how to assess it and how to tackle it. Its all in one, a go to journal to tackle childhood obesity.

There are a handful Good nutrition and diet tips too. That’s not all at the end the author gives us a peak into ‘Nutrition diet myths and like’ that is the book 4 in this series.
