Obesity is nothing less than a disease that has taken over the United States for years and is now becoming a part of Florida as well. What is Obesity? Obesity is the state of being overweight. It is known to be more deadly for children as compared to adults since the body is still developing in children and their bodies are insufficient to deal with obesity, hence causing multiple diseases.
What causes obesity in children today is eating food that contain high rate of calories and fat and not burning enough calories in return due to which they get stored in the body and breakout in the form of increase in weight. Foods leading to obesity are milk, sweets, sugar based beverages (such as fizzy drinks and shakes), French fries, processed meat, chicken, butter, margarine, and any form of fast processed food.
Increasing childhood obesity becomes a part of the child’s lifestyle which leads to diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol and cause the child to feel less confident and depressed.
It is difficult to stop a child from eating all these fattening food products because it is what the society offers and everyone around them consumes, for which health insurance must be issued. Health insurance plays an essential role in preventing obesity and maintaining a healthy lifestyle which works as a motivation for both, children and parents. Health insurance companies provide the subscribers multiple incentives to adapt healthy lifestyle and track their progress through BMI and HEDIS data collection. They also provide assessment, evaluation, treatment, and follow-up to help eliminate obesity from the society.
