This Might be the End of Childhood Obesity

This Might be the End of Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is a real problem in our country, but nothing seems to be making a real, meaningful impact. Until now. Our friends at Super Sprowtz are on a mission to inspire children’s healthy eating by transforming the way kids think about vegetables. They’re using awesome veggie superheros and vegetable “super powers” to achieve a Sesame Street effect on kids. And it’s been working! They’ve found that children who interact with the Super Sprowtz characters choose vegetables more than kids who’ve never seen the guys. Watch the following video and we bet you’ll be totally inspired to eat more veggies from the dining hall.

Convinced? We are. Make an impact fighting childhood obesity by donating to the Super Sprowtz indiegogo campaign here, and check out their tour dates to see if they’re coming to your city!

Children in Canada, their parents, health professionals and government ministers will welcome the news that there has been a decline in overweight and obese children over the past ten years. Although there is a long way to go before levels of childhood obesity return to the levels seen in the 1980s, the reduction in the proportion of children in Canada who are overweight or obese is a rare achievement.

Childhood obesity is recognised by the World Health Organisation as one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century. Adult obesity is linked to cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke), cancer, diabetes, osteoarthritis and chronic kidney disease. It is also associated with reduced life expectancy and reduced healthy-life expectancy. Children who are obese are likely to become obese adults and so are at risk of these health problems.

But childhood obesity isn’t only a health risk because of its association with adult obesity. Childhood obesity itself is associated with premature mortality, early onset type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and high cholesterol. It is also linked to asthma, musculoskeletal problems (such as arthritis), and psychological problems. Children who are obese have worse general health and more school absences as a result, which may have consequences for them beyond health.
