NOVEMBER 14 is World Diabetes Day. On this occasion, the Consumers’ Association of Penang calls on the authorities to take immediate steps to control the growing number of obese children in the country.

Children in Malaysia have been labelled the fattest in the region, but their weight carries a greater burden than just their size.

The recent movement control order (MCO) worsened the situation as most children were unable to indulge in physical activity.

Parents were complaining that their children were consuming more food than usual. The availability of food through online delivery services, especially fast food, which serve unhealthy foods also contributes to obesity.

Fast food, which is high in fats and salt, together with high-sugar soft drinks appeal to children. Continuous consumption of such foods increases their chances of getting diabetes, because obesity is linked to higher prevalence of diabetes.

Studies have showed that the childhood obesity level in Malaysia is among the highest in Asian countries. This is not surprising as overweight children and youngsters are a common sight at public places.

Children who are overweight or obese face an increased risk of developing serious health conditions like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol – all considered exclusively adult diseases in the past.

Overweight and obese children are also more likely to turn into overweight adults, and obesity in adulthood is more severe, in terms of consequences.

Children who are obese are also more likely to develop impaired glucose tolerance, decreased insulin resistance, suffer liver or gall bladder disease, gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD), sleep apnoea, breathing difficulties like asthma, joint problems, and musculo-skeletal problems.

According to the Malaysian Mental Health Association, in addition to medical problems, overweight children may also suffer psychological problems, such as low self-esteem – which stems from being teased or bullied by peers – develop unhealthy dieting habits and eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia, be more prone to depression, or are at risk of substance abuse.

According to experts, the “fat phenomenon” in our country can be attributed to a combination of poor eating habits, a diet high in calories, and a decline in physical activity, resulting in more calorific intake than is required by the body.

In addition, more meals eaten away from home, fewer family meals, and greater portion sizes may also have contributed to children becoming overweight.

Furthermore, the boom in mobile entertainment devices and too much screen time has also contributed to children’s sedentary lifestyles.

Children are now less physically active as their entertainment has changed from physical or outdoor activities to indoor video games and television.

To further compound this problem, there is a lack of safe or conducive outdoor play areas, especially in urban areas.
