Pediatric Nursing in Obesity Prevention

Being overweight or obese creates psychosocial risks for the child. Being significantly overweight has an impact on the child's level of self-esteem and creates problems in social relationships with peers subjecting them to teasing and ridicule, resulting in social withdrawal. Obese children are unable to participate in the same level of physical activity as other children. The ongoing stigma and social isolation of being different erodes the child's sense of wellbeing, and unless there is a reversal of the child's condition, serious mental health problems can ensue.
