Adjust font size:

A survey on the nutritious conditions of kids in Shanghai reveals that there are 50 percent of girls suffering from weight problems. Some 10 percent of them are too fat, and another 10 percent too thin.

Obviously, Shanghai people still need to know more about nutritious diet, as 70.4 percent of the kids have an unbalanced diet of too much junk food like hamburger and soft drinks.

Over-dieting is a problem among many girls, too, which might lead to severe eating disorders like anorexia .

Apart from weight problems, the lack of micronutrients, especially calcium, is haunting the girls, although some 93.1 percent of the responders drink milk every day. Doctors suggest that parents should offer their kids more milk to solve the problem.
