    Indian mothers blamed for spreading child obesity

    Nutritionists have blamed plump Indian mothers for increasing obesity among their children.



    A study of children in Indian cities found they are more likely to be fat if their mothers are overweight and that many Indian mothers mistook chubby cheeks for a sign of good health.

    The study, conducted by doctors from India's National Diabetes, Obesity and Cholesterol Foundation, looked at the attitudes of parents towards diet and health and recorded concerns over widespread ignorance, in particular among mothers.

    It found that 64.8 per cent of mothers surveyed in four Indian cities were overweight or obese, as were 19.2 per cent of their sons and 18.1 per cent of their daughters.

    Dr Anoop Misra, one of the report's authors, said that many of the women were not concerned about their children's weight.

    "Despite the obesity of their children they are fussing over them and if the child is overweight they consider them healthy rather than fat," he said.
