Sudden weight gain is a complex health issue. It occurs when a child is well above the normal or healthy weight for his or her age and height. The causes of excess weight gain in young people are similar to those in the elderly, including factors such as a person’s behavior and genetics.
Here are three reasons for unexplained weight gain in children:
* Physical activity is missing from daily routine - exercise can speed up metabolism.
* More Sedentary acitivities - such as watching TV, Video games, Ipad etc.
* Certain food addictions (specially sugary foods and aeriated drinks)
