Obesity In Childhood Can Harm Social And Emotional Well-Being And Academic Performance

More early nutritional child abuse.
Obesity among children has increased dramatically over the past 40 years and has been tied to many health problems. Now a new study has found that children's weight is associated with their math performance.

The longitudinal study, published in the journal Child Development, was carried out by researchers at the University of Missouri, Columbia, the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of Vermont.

"The findings illustrate the complexity of relations among children's weight status, social and emotional well-being, academics, and time." according to Sara Gable, associate professor of nutrition and exercise physiology at the University of Missouri, Columbia, who led the study.
It is not complex.

It is a direct effect of poor parenting.

Hold parents accountable and watch the math scores improve.
