Many parents of obese children don't see their offspring as unhealthy, even if their weight is at a dangerous level, according to a new study. (Via Getty Images)
New research published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics also found those parents often resist lifestyle changes that encourage their children to develop healthy eating and exercise habits early on in their lives.
A team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine analyzed data from surveys filled out by roughly 200 parents. Those parents had children enrolled in the obesity clinic atHasbro Children's Hospital in Rhode Island.
CBS notes the children's ages ranged from 5 to 20, and 94 percent could be classified as clinically obese, which is characterized by a body mass index higher than 30.
The researchers found 28 percent of the parents didn't see their child's weight as a health concern, and 31 percent thought their child's health was either excellent or very good. (Via Getty Images)
The study's lead author said in a news release from UC San Diego, "Parents have a hard time changing their child's dietary and physical activity behaviors."
Overall, the study's authors say the parents were more willing to implement changes in their child's diet rather than encourage them to exercise more. (Via Getty Images)
And parents who were obese themselves were even more unlikely to take steps to change their child's diet or exercise habits. (Via Getty Images)
Science Direct quotes the study's authors as saying, "These parents may have tried making dietary changes in the past and were not effective, or felt overwhelmed by the situation and no longer felt capable of making changes."
The director of the weight management program at Miami Children's Hospital told HealthDay parents often tell him their obese children will outgrow their weight problems. "There is a lot of fact to this study that I experience every day [with parents]."
But some doctors say the study's conclusion is old news.
â€‹â€‹â€‹ELIZABETH WARD, MS, RD: "There's been other studies that have shown parents don't realize the problem. I have to emphasize that if you don't know there's a problem, you can't do anything about it." (Via WFXT)
And it's a growing problem, at that. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, childhood obesity in the U.S. has more than doubled in the past 30 years. In 2012, more than one-third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese.Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:12:32 -0700
Four Bay Area residents described as members of a "traveling burglary crew" have been arrested by Hollister police in San Benito County after a car chase, police said.
At about 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, two officers from the Hollister Police Department attempted to stop a vehicle on San Felipe Road but the driver led them on a chase to other areas of the county, Officer Bo Leland said.
As the officers pursued the vehicle, they observed people inside throwing various items from it, according to Leland.
The driver finally stopped in the 800 block of Bonnie View Road in Hollister, where police arrested Christopher Montoya, 28, of Gilroy; Andrea Quintero, 39, of Santa Clara; Stephen Lee, 25, of Salinas; and Miguel Aguayo-Cesena, 26, of Gilroy.
All four were booked into San Benito County Jail on suspicion of evading a police officer with willful disregard, conspiracy to commit a crime, destruction of evidence and possession of burglary tools.
Lee was also arrested on a warrant for an alleged parole violation.
Hollister police Chief David Westrick said in a statement that since the suspects were from different cities outside the county, the department is "considering the prospect that this was a traveling burglary crew."
Police are working with other law enforcement agencies in the region to tie the four suspects to burglaries and stolen car reports currently under investigation, Westrick said.Thu, 24 Jul 2014 11:53:31 -0700
Fire officials at South Lake Tahoe are investigating the cause of a blaze that did more than $2 million damage to a two-story hotel on Ski Run Boulevard and sent two people to the hospital.
South Lake Tahoe Fire Chief Jeff Meston told Lake Tahoe News the two injured jumped from the second-story balcony after the fire broke out about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday at the Deerfield Lodge west of the casino district.
They were taken to Barton Memorial Hospital where their condition was unknown.
Meston says all six rooms in the back building were destroyed along with six vehicles.
Firefighters had the blaze under control by 2:35 a.m. Meston says crews kept the flames from spreading to the front of the hotel.
Thirty-five hotel guests were transported to the Lakeside Inn for the night.Thu, 24 Jul 2014 11:49:28 -0700 News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
