Emerging literature suggests a link between child obesity and the increase in type 2 diabetes in India. Obese children have a higher risk of abnormalities that are recognized to bring on Type 2 diabetes, such as subclinical inflammation, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.

Lack of awareness amongst parents and teachers about the dangers of obesity is fueling the rise. India is already known as the Diabetes Capital of the World, and urgent steps need to be taken to save the country’s children from this malaise.
“MOM IT is designed to help parents and schools to identify the dangers and take back control,” said Himanshu Arora, Country Head of Obesity International. “Our goal is to make sure that we provide parents and schools access to MOM IT on a war footing, so steps can be taken to stop this epidemic in its tracks”.
MOM IT comprises of a simple 3 point formula, Modulate, Observe and Measure, based on published scientific guidelines to reduce incidence of diabetes. The IT tools comprise of a personalized Nutrition and Food Habits Scan and a tool to Swap unhealthy foods with foods that are healthier for children. Parents and schools can access the tool online on Obesity International Website at www.obesityinternational.org or through WhatsApp.
