the increase in child obvesity is caused by the carefree and careless attitude or habbits or mothers before and during pregnancy.I agree with the doc that many mothers just eat junks,smoke drinks heavily while pregnant not mindinfg the harm this could cause the innocent unbron child.

Dear Kayus,

There are many contributors to childhood obesity, with some of the maternal factors you listed above being included. Yes, pediatric endocrinologists can help to manage childhood obesity.
