Australian kids are struggling to cope with rising obesity rates
The latest figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) reveal that Australians aged 10 to 19 now consume more than two times the amount of calories in food than their counterparts in the United States.
The ABS data, released on Wednesday, shows the country has the highest obesity rate in the developed world.
Obesity rates are rising faster than any other major country in the world, with Australia leading the way.
In 2016, an average Australian aged 10-17 consumed around three times the calories in the food of the United Kingdom, according to data from the Department of Health.
While the Australian government has recently been working to tackle the obesity epidemic, the figures are still alarming.
The latest data shows that the rate of obesity is double the national average.
“Obesity is a national public health problem and the number of Australians with obesity has doubled since the last Census,” the ABS said in a statement.
The report also found that more than 40 per cent of Australian children are overweight, and nearly half of those children have the condition. “
In 2016, obesity rates among Australian children were the highest in the OECD and the highest rate in Western Europe.”
The report also found that more than 40 per cent of Australian children are overweight, and nearly half of those children have the condition.
More than 50 per cent are obese.
“While obesity is an issue across the OECD, in Australia, more than half of Australian school-age children have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above,” the report said.
“This is more than twice the OECD average.”
There are currently around 8.5 million Australian children under 10.
This figure has grown by about 25 per cent in the past decade.
While obesity is a problem across the developed countries, it is still a problem in Australia.
“Children are getting bigger, more unhealthy and they’re not eating enough,” the director of the National Obesity Foundation, Dr David Nutt, told ABC News.
“I think this is a reflection of our country’s growing population.”
A range of measures have been put in place to address the issue.
“We’ve seen a number of interventions that have had a big impact in terms of getting kids into good weight loss programmes, getting them to eat more vegetables, making sure they’re getting exercise, and that kind of thing,” Dr Nutt said.
There have also been many public health initiatives, including the introduction of the “nappy bag” programme and the introduction the Nutty Diet, which aims to reduce the amount children eat in the morning.
There is also the introduction and support of a national food bank program, which provides food to households that are not able to access it.
There are also new initiatives such as the National Children’s Obesity Prevention Plan and the National Dietitian Dietitians Dietitics.
The National Dieticians’ Dietitias Dietiticks’ Health Institute also released its latest National Obesity Monitoring Report last week.
It shows that while the obesity rate has remained stable since the mid-1990s, the number has risen by more than 25 per per cent over the past two decades.
“It’s certainly a huge issue,” Dr Nick Smith, a nutrition expert at the Royal Children’s Hospital, told the ABC.
“And that’s really the crux of the problem.”
Health problems are becoming more common Dr Nutts worries are echoed by others.
“A lot of the health problems that are emerging around the world are emerging here,” he said.
Dr Smith, who has been involved in research into the effects of a range of obesity treatments, said the obesity problem was also becoming more prevalent.
“There’s a huge number of patients who are struggling with this and this is really a growing concern for the community,” he added.
“People are struggling all the time, it’s really a national problem.”
A lack of support for the obese Dr Nutson also warned that it was a problem that was affecting the health of Australian adults, particularly those with a body type known as the obese.
“Obesity isn’t just a problem for people with fat,” he explained.
The obesity rate for children aged 10 and under is now three times that of the population as a whole, he said, adding that this was also a problem when it came to adults. “
For those with very low body weight, this is actually a problem.”
The obesity rate for children aged 10 and under is now three times that of the population as a whole, he said, adding that this was also a problem when it came to adults.
“When it comes to adults, the rate is more like four times the adult rate,” he noted.
“So, obesity is still very common among Australians, but it’s a much more prevalent problem for the older people.”
Dr Nuts advice to parents Dr Nutbs warned parents about the obesity issue.
“What we are seeing in our society is that children are becoming obese,” he told ABC Radio National.
