IS THIS THE FIRST GENERATION IN WHICH PARENTS OUTLIVE THEIR CHILDREN?
The World Health Organisation estimate that on a global scale there are over 170 million children classified as overweight. They sadly point out that childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century.
So, are parents helping their children?
In the UK alone Kirby et al., (2017) claim that the majority of adults themselves are classified as overweight or obese, and these rates have risen dramatically over the past few decades (Townshend & Lake 2017).
So, what hope is there for parent or child?
Both adults and children who attempt to lose weight are faced with various psychosocial factors, that could influence any weight loss success. Via our workplace wellness programs we help the employees family as a whole, and for no extra cost to the business owner.
Employees are naturally going to take their baggage into work, but it’s a ‘quick win’ for the employer that offers to help them. Helping to carry this excess weight from the shoulders of their staff, ensures a happy workplace – with less stress for the employer.
Being overweight is only one health issue – we cover all the pillars of wellness.
