Schooling children seem to be at a larger risk of putting on too much weight when they are away from schools, such as during the summer holidays. Children do not have compulsory physical education lessons then and often lead sedentary lifestyles while consuming junk food. Parents can encourage children to spend an hour doing some exercise everyday, but the question is if the children are willing, and also if the parents have the time to motivate their children to do so.
