How Eating Disorders In Children Today Affect Our Tomorrow
Eating Disorders In Children
It's unfair, and may be
unfortunate, but we nowhave eating disorders in children.
Children are fast
becoming victims of the menace that's ravaging a good number of people in our society.
If you are an adult or adolescent, you are likely not to have
known what it meant to watch weight at 5years.
Now, check out some 5year old girls refusing food because
They Don't Want To Be FAT!
This syndrome keeps many mothers on their toes fighting
with these little beauties over meals.
Bulimia is growing its tentacles as these kids learn to throw up
whatever was forced down.
Bingeing is another
eating disorder in children.
Encouraged by adult
parents or guardians, they eat at every turn.
What happens next?
They grow to
constantly eat or demand food.
Easy… They grab
whatever is available.
Moreover, junk stuff is often within easy reach.
So, you see a child constantly stuffing some junk or the other.
Is it any wonder the high level hyperactivity tendencies in our children?
The crave for more junk and more food just keeps rising.
A society that pacifies a child's tantrums with promise of some food,
ice cream, cakes and candies has much waiting in the near future.
Yes, much of the unwanted…
When kids learn that food is the answer to every discomfort,
then discipline is thrown overboard.
Proper control is lost.
And we have as a reward, Insatiable, Uncontrollable kids who would rather
Binge! than engage in any demanding usefulness.
Another unwanted result is
There is the right time to
eat, right food for the brain.
If you miss out on these,
The children that perform
poorly today are the same kids that will be in the helm of affairs tomorrow, taking decisions that will bind us all.
When it has to do with kids and foods, please learn to guide them right,
Feed them right, feed them today, bearing their and our tomorrow in
