Project Name : Childhood Obesity – An Action Research
Theme Name : Health
Our investigatory project is on “Childhood Obesity” – an emerging menace.
Our hypothesis – obesity is mainly a consequence of life-style problems. To confirm the above, an action research was done on a total of 500 students, 300 from a private school, and 200 from a government school by calculating their BMI and knowing more about factors like
income groups, food habits and school activities of the children.
Our findings – 30% students were overweight or obese in private school, 0% obesity in government school. An action program was organized for 20 randomly selected obese children, which included workshops, aerobic session etc.
