It has been proven that being overweight is an invitation to ill health. While children have fewer weight-related health and medical issues than adults, overweight children are at high risk of becoming overweight adults, positioning them at risk of developing chronic diseases later in life.

In his book, Dr. Sanjay Borude outlines a 360-degree view of the causative factors of a child’s obesity and the role of the child’s environment. The book provides illustrative guidelines about the changes one should make in diet, lifestyle, and environment in order to manage childhood obesity. With real-life case studies and examples, the book guides the parents and children to chart a pathway to recovery leading to a fitter, healthier life.
