Obesity New Normal

A new study in US and Medifit Centers finds that parents are finding obesity or overweight isssue in children. They consider them as normal. The change is attributed to “social comparison,” said leading doctors. “We just look around at people in our neighborhood and in our schools and we compare,” she said. “If a lot of the other kids are about the same size as my child, then (parents may think) ‘my child is probably just fine.’”The study compares results of two parent surveys: • In 1988-1994, 21 percent of parents with overweight boys and 39 percent of parents of overweight girls perceived their child as overweight. • In the 2005-2010 survey, the figures dropped to 16 percent for boys and 22 percent for girls. That is a 24 percent drop from the earlier survey.
