Therefore, we should identify the causes more accurately in order to offer effective solutions to solve this issue for the sake of children’s health in America. From my perspective, the main cause of obesity in the American children can be the gene in an individual, their socio-economic status and their dietary.In the US context, Genetics has a huge role to be played in determining if children can be obese.
