Burgers, chocolates, pizzas, colas – the list of fast food consumption seems endless. It is not an issue if consumed once in a while. But when it becomes a regular habit and is left unchecked, it can lead to varied harmful effects, especially in children. Moderation is the key factor and a healthy home-cooked diet is an ultimate ideal.
We have listed the top 5 most harmful effects of fast food on children:

1. Lower academic improvement: This is a major concern for parents across the globe. Research was conducted by Ohio state university covering around 12,000 students to find a link between fast food consumption frequency and academic achievements. Students who had fast food every day were slower at reading and solving math problems and science, compared to non-junk food eaters.

2. Obesity and other disorders: This is the most common disorder which occurs due to junk food packed with excessive sugar, carbohydrates, sodium and saturated fats. Obese children are susceptible to heart diseases, respiratory disorders, diabetes, and digestive problems.

3. Bone health: Recent research has shown that over-consumption of fast food leads to poor bone health in young children.

4. Poor skin: Numerous subjective reports and independent research by practitioners have revealed that when junk food is strictly eliminated, there is a significant improvement in skin related issues such as acne and rosacea.

5. Hyperactivity: Due to the high sugar content, fast food has been linked to hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder in children. Hyperactivity occurs due to the artificial rush generated by sugar in the body. When it crashes, it leads to mood-related and concentration issues.
