The obesity environment
The Obesity Environment

  • Consumption of energy encouraged!

    • Wide variety, low cost, good taste, high fat/energy dense foods available everywhere

    • Large portions

  • Expenditure of energy discouraged!

    • Reduction of jobs requiring physical labor

    • Reduction of PE at schools

    • Increased time spent watching TV, web, video games

    • Urban sprawl

Helwos healthy life with out obesity via sports sempati sport club association

But the obesity epidemic is

NOT just an individual problem…

We have to reach the



Potential strategies 1
Potential strategies - 1

  • Global (WHO, EU, others)

    • With governments, examine the role of globalization on food availability and consumption; transport and urban planning; social networks; local and national economies

    • Promote the importance of evidence-based, independent research in the role of diet, physical activity, economic/ psychosocial factors in reducing SE inequalities in obesity

  • National / local

    • Create funds for local authorities, voluntary organisations and community groups to deliver a range of local schemes such as safe routes to school, community regeneration projects, local coalitions to reducing health inequalities

    • Examine pricing policies to ensure that healthy foods are accessible to all and ensure that foods like fruit and vegetables are no longer luxury items

Example re prioritizing access and price

Less of this…

More of this…

Example : Re-prioritizing access and price

Junk food at school and in the curriculum

School fruit tuck shop in Swansea

Potential strategies 2

  • NGO

    • Develop programmes for low income households on how to prepare low-cost healthy meals and on how and where to access physical activity opportunities at low cost

    • Support local agriculture and community physical activity initiatives to promote social cohesion, sense of worth, healthier food intake and higher activity level

  • Food supply

    • Encourage more farmers’ markets and grocery stores to establish themselves in low income areas, to reduce ‘food deserts’ and provide sources of healthy food within walking distance

    • Increase the visibility and appeal of healthy foods in supermarkets, and those accepted by particular ethnic groups

Potential strategies 3
Potential strategies - 3

  • Media

    • Attract celebrity role models in the promotion of healthy eating and physical activity

    • Promote a healthy lifestyle culture (e.g. incorporate positive behaviour change messages into television programmes and popular magazines)

UNDP "Teams to end Poverty"

  • Health care

    • Increase health professionals’ awareness of SE inequalities in obesity

    • Develop partnerships between health services, social services and local authority which can provide a catalyst for increased community networks to support disadvantaged groups and liaise with existing physical activity and diet initiatives

Potential strategies 4

  • Education sites

    • Improve access to pre-school education

    • Have school nutrition policies to ensure good nutritional quality of foods served in cafeterias

    • Incorporate physical activity into the school day as integrated in the curriculum

    • Develop clear policies about bullying related to body size

  • Work sites

    • Include healthy food choices (e.g. subsidize healthy foods in cafeterias) and physical activity options (e.g. exercise facilities and changing rooms) at the workplace

    • Actively address hiring discrimination and stigmatization

Population strategy

Parks and recreation:

  • Provide a unique venue for children, adults, and seniors to learn about heart healthy lifestyles.

  • Adopt programs to meet the needs of the community.

  • Mobilize community partners and bring people together

How much physical activity a day
How Much Physical Activity a Day?

  • To reduce the risk of chronic diseases in adulthood: Engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity, above usual activity, at work or home on most days of the week.

  • To help manage weight and prevent gradual, unhealthy weight gain inadulthood: Engage in approximately 60 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity activity on most days of the week while not exceeding caloric intake requirements.

  • To sustain weight loss in adulthood:

  • Participate in at least 60 to 90 minutes of daily moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity while not exceeding caloric intake requirements. (Some may need to contact their healthcare provider before participating in this level of activity.)

How much physical activity a day1

Any activity helps.

Moderate physical activity brings health benefits.

Make it personal.

Start slowly (10 minute walk/day).

Lack of Physical Activity for special Needs

  • Children with special needs may have fewer opportunities for physical activity because of a need for constant supervision or for adaptive equipment.

  • Children who are unable to walk burn fewer calories than those who walk.

  • Children who walk with braces and crutches or walkers actually burn more calories than typical children during actual periods of walking.

Over-Permissive or Over-Restrictive Parenting


  • Parents may try to compensate their child for his/her medical or physical problem by allowing whatever they want to eat.

  • Parents may be afraid to allow their child to do things for him/herself because of their disabilities

  • Parents may be confused about how and when to set limits for a child with physical or mental disabilities.

Overweight affects quality of life and self esteem
Overweight Affects Quality of Life and Self Esteem Special Needs?

  • Research has shown that overweight children are more likely to be teased and to be targets of bullies.

  • Research on Health Related Quality of Life and children with developmental disabilities has shown progressive decreases in quality of life scores as BMI’s rise.*

  • Overweight may lower self esteem by interfering with independence.

Overweight promotes dependence
Overweight Promotes Dependence Special Needs?

Overweight reduces mobility by:

  • Causing braces and prostheses to be quickly outgrown

  • Causing a need for larger and heavier braces or wheelchairs with wider wheel bases

Overweight becomes an additional disability
Overweight Becomes Special Needs?******An AdditionalDisability*******

  • Overweight Interferes with self care :

    • Dressing oneself becomes difficult or impossible

    • It’s hard to tie shoes

    • Transfers from wheelchairs become much more difficult

    • Catheterizing oneself or using the restroom by oneself may be impossible

Obesity results in health risks and complications
Obesity Results in Health Risks and Complications Special Needs?

Increased risk of :

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart disease

  • Arteriosclerosis

  • Diabetes

  • Post surgical complications

  • Pressure sores

  • Joint problems (foot, knee and hip)

  • Blount’s disease

  • Fatty liver disease

  • Sleep apnea

Impact of obesity on persons with disabilities
Impact of Obesity on Persons with Disabilities Special Needs?

  • Consequences of obesity may cause greater harm to people with disabilities due to:

    • lower threshold of health associated with various secondary and associated conditions accommodating certain disabling conditions.

    • difficulty in accessing health promotion programs in their home or community leading to continuing weight gain.

  • It is imperative that we increase awareness about the obesity-related health disparities that exist between adolescents with disabilities compared to their non-disabled peers.

Potential barriers to participation in health promotion activities for youth with disabilities
Potential Barriers to Participation in Health Promotion Activities for Youth with Disabilities

  • Youth with disabilities are often denied the opportunity to participate in the same physical and recreational opportunities as their non-disabled peers.

  • Certain accommodations are necessary to enable youth with disabilities to participate in physical activity and nutritional programs.

  • Many school-based obesity interventions do not address specific physical and nutritional concerns associated with particular disabilities.
