In Britain, an eight-month-old baby is already being examined at a clinic for severe obesity cases. The clinic, called Splash, is part of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) in Somerset and is one of the few facilities in the country that offers specialist support in the form of nutritional and psychological advice to young children and their families.

Dr. Chris Knight, clinical director of paediatrics, told the Daily Mail: “The age of eight months is unusual, but at this age we can really make progress in feeding these children at a very early stage. It’s a really good opportunity to change things for the better.”

15 percent of the children are younger than two years

Although most cases involve children between the ages of two and four, about 15 percent of children who come to the clinic are younger than two years old.

Professor Peter Fleming, an expert in child health and developmental physiology at the University of Bristol, confirmed that it was not uncommon for babies to be severely overweight as early as six months. This is often because parents give their children solid food too early.

Obesity leads to serious health problems

Obesity, also known as obesity or severe overweight, is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated. This can lead to various health problems, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer and stroke.

Obesity is usually diagnosed based on body mass index (BMI), with a BMI of 30 or higher considered obese. Treatment may include a combination of diet, exercise, behavior changes, and sometimes medical interventions.
