Obesity and diabetes are two critical metabolic conditions that strike not just adults, but children as well. Children are innocent and look for taste rather than health. They’re attracted by colorfully packaged sweet goods like chocolates, ice-creams, biscuits and more. Kids do not realize that these foods are loaded with sugar, refined flour and other ingredients that lead to obesity and diabetes.
Childhood diabetes or juvenile diabetes is basically the early onset of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes in children. There are more than 1 million cases of juvenile diabetes reported in India per year.
