According to a new study, carried out by the Assocham Development Foundation, the majority of the working mothers give birth to unhealthy kids.
These entire claims came to limelight after the researchers tracked about 2,000 students in 25 schools in diverse cities, which also included metropolitan cities like Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Delhi, Kolkata, Pune, Chennai and Mumbai.
The researchers discovered that out of these 2,000 students, almost 56% of the working mothers had their kids suffering from the chronic health issues like obesity.
However, only 28% of children faced these healthy problems because of the other unhealthy circumstances, while merely 16% of the kids, who had homemaker mums, were found to be facing these unhealthy problems.
Giving a brief about the obesity ill effects, the health experts declared that the childhood obesity certainly lead to chronic fatness related conditions, which include cardio-vascular sickness, diabetes and fatty liver problems in their later life.
The reports also highlighted the fact that all those kids, whose mothers were, doing a full day employment, lean to consume more junk food and as a result of which they failed to consume the necessary fruits and vegetables.
Meanwhile, the reports also affirmed that rather than playing outdoor games, all these kids' remained in their indoors environments by playing computer games or watching television.
Moreover, the most surprising part was that while doing these lazy indoor activities they continued to ate lots of junk food.
The reports further stated that just because of the extra job pressures, these working mothers failed to cook healthy family meals and surprisingly, most of the employed parents expended more money on eating these junk food stuffs.
Sharing his views about the raised issue, Health Committee Chairman, B K Rao said, "A healthy diet plays a preventive role in relation to nutrition-related conditions such as overweight, obesity and dental disease and osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus, later in life".
