Childhood obesity has become an alarming sign of public health deterioration, thus, suggests the role of the authorities in obesity prevention. However, I believe this is the responsibility of the citizens as well.

Maintaining the nation’s well-being is one of the government’s fundamental roles; thus, overweight in children is an issue that must be examined. The most apparent reason is that obesity leads to multiple health risks including heart diseases, diabetes, breathing problems etc., that adversely affect a country’s overall wellness, especially when 80% of obese children fail to cure obesity growing into adulthood. For example, in the 2018 Journals of American Heart Association, it has been reported that 8 out of 10 people with type 2 diabetes are overweight and a 10 kg higher body weight will increase the risk for stroke by 24%, which is causing difficulties for 70% of American population.

Nevertheless, the government should not be the sole party to concern about obesity at young age but parents must pay close attention to their kids’ health condition as well. Although the government may have great obesity prevention programs for children, it is not fully effective without the proper care of parents as the government cannot control the nutrition intake and activities of every child. Parents, thus, must be the ones to develop a balanced diet for their children, especially reducing sugar consumption. To elaborate, a recent Harvard School of Public Health study, which tracked the diet and lifestyle habits of 120,000 children for up to 20 years, found that children who increased their intake of fruit juice gained more weight over time than those who did not.

In short, to fight against childhood obesity, proper care is required from both the government and parents.
