Abstract

The problem of childhood adiposity has reached epidemic proportions in many parts of the world and has become a public health challenge. Obesity co-morbidities are expected to increase progressively in line with the recent observed increase in childhood adiposity. Unless a solution is found, adiposity trends will escalate increasing mortality . To date the understanding of why this is happening is rudimentary and it seems that no coherent and effective methods have been developed to overcome this condition. Biological influences, parental influences and societal influences need all to be addressed if childhood adiposity is to be managed appropriately. Effective policies and programmes are needed at both global and national levels in order to address childhood adiposity. In light of these findings this paper explores the literature to provide a comprehensive understanding of the cause and effect in childhood adiposity. This paper also provides recommendations and possible solutions/methods of intervention for what could be considered a National epidemic.
