It is often argued that, the jump in obesity cases among children has been caused due to the influence of the government. I absolutely disagree with the statement and think that other factors are at play.
First of all, parents have a huge responsibility to decide what a child can eat and which they can't. Depending on the diet choices, one could be healthy or they could be obese. For example, many parents succumb to the temper tantrums of children and have to give in to their demands of eating fatty and unhealthy foods and this directly translates to obesity.
Secondly, use of electronic gadgets have become increasingly popular among young ones. They are often found playing games or watching entertainment shows on the televisions. Smartphones are also a huge contributing factor as viewing various shows becomes portable. The want for spending time outside the house and engaging in physical activities has reduced significantly leading to obesity. For instance, it is seen that, in a time where there was no internet or even tv's, the rates of obesity was lower when compared to today.
Moreover, the amount of sleep that children get, directly impacts physical health. According to various studies conducted by various medical universities and individual researches, it was found that, children who sleep less than 8 hours a day, tend to become more stout, as compared to children who get a good nights sleep of more than 8 hours.
To conclude, I believe that the involvement of government has no correlation to increase in rates of obesity as parents, electronics and sleep times were found to have more control over it.
