Obese Kid

Childhood obesity is on the rise. So this year, make few changes in your diet to ensure a fit and healthy 2018. Here are few common foods listed by Dr Ramen Goel, senior bariatric surgeon & Director, Center of Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery, Wockhardt Hospitals that every obese kid must avoid this year.


Carbonated beverages are a strict no no for obese kids. The reason, these drinks are loaded with sugar, which ultimately make your gain weight and further worsen your condition.

White Bread

The next on the list and the most widely used food item is white bread. White bread is not only bad for the health due to lack of nutrients and high levels of sugar content, it can also make you put on weight if eaten daily. So cut down on this food.
