The First and Only Milk for Obese Children is here!
It is always a joyful sight to see chubby kids with their cute smiles and feel their very comforting
hugs. We always hear the phrases “ang cute naman niya, ang taba,” or “Maganda yan, mataba,paglaki naman niya, papayat siya.” It is a common scenario among Filipino households especially talking about kids who are overweight or obese. And as delightful as they may be, their health must be given close attention.
The World Health Organization states that in the Philippines, three out of 10 kids here are either overweight or obese. In the last 15 years, there has been a 300% increase in adolescent obesity. Furthermore, overweight and obesity prevalence continued to increase from 5.8% in 2003 to 11.7% in 2018.
Evidence suggests that overweight and obese children are likely to stay obese into adulthood and more likely to develop non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases at a younger age. WHO further explains that NCDs are now the leading killers in the Philippines, comprising more than 50% of all deaths each year.
Parents indeed carry a critical role on their children’s health. And aside from proper medical consultation and diagnosis, we now have a milk solution that help prevent obesity.
