Childhood obesity in India is a growing health concern, with recent studies indicating that nearly 14.4 million children in the country are affected by it. At KinderCure, we address this challenge head-on, adopting a holistic approach to promote healthy growth in children.

The Rising Trend of Childhood Obesity in India

Recent statistics show a worrying increase in childhood obesity rates in India. Factors contributing to this include poor dietary habits like high consumption of processed foods and sugary drinks, combined with sedentary lifestyles often linked to increased screen time.

Health Implications and Psychological Effects

Obesity in childhood can lead to serious health issues like type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Psychologically, it can result in low self-esteem and disorders such as depression and anxiety, impacting overall well-being.

The Role of Regular Check-Ups at KinderCure

Regular paediatric check-ups at KinderCure are crucial. During these visits, we assess your child’s growth patterns, dietary habits, and physical activity levels. This allows us to provide personalised advice and early intervention strategies.

Success Stories from KinderCure

We’ve seen remarkable success in managing childhood obesity. Take, for instance, the case of 10-year-old Riya, who, with our guidance, successfully adopted a healthier lifestyle, resulting in improved physical and emotional health.
