The idea that obesity is plaguing the majority of children in developed countries has been well documented. However, what about the rest of the world?

Obesity is a major health issue in developed countries.  One issue that seems to have scarce coverage is the increasing prevalence of obesity in children living in developing countries (DC) (Gupta, Goel, Shah, & Misra, 2012).  I will investigate the global impact of obesity on childhood populations in DC and explore the possible implications of childhood obesity on early childhood development (ECD) in DC.
