In many countries people are concerned about the number of children who are overweight. What do you think are the causes of this? What solutions can you suggest?

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of obesity among children around the world.
This
is mainly because of the lack of active sports, and unhealthy food served at schools. There are a number of measures to be taken in order to tackle
this
issue.

with, nowadays children have more sedative lifestyles than in the past. They tend to spend their leisure time in front of computers and play games for long hours without actively moving.
For instance
, it was very common for children to play football with their peers after school hours a decade ago.
However
, today most of them are rushing their homes to enjoy their pastime playing console games. One effective solution to
this
is educating families and teachers to persuade children to attend sports clubs or do frequent exercises after school. By doing

, children will have a faster metabolism,
thus
burn more calories. Another reason for
this
is the unhealthy food served
