[Extract] Obesity is a global biopsychosociological and economic problem. The rapidly increasing prevalence of obesity in young people is a major global public health concern. This is due to the fact that not only does it have immediate undesirable health consequences in childhood and adolescence, but it is also indicative of a greater risk of obesity in adulthood. The key causes of obesity are increased consumption of energy-dense foods high in saturated fats and sugars; stress; lack of rest and reduced levels of physical activity (Dodd et al., 2008; IOTF & EASO, 2005).
