Childhood obesity is no more appreciable in today’s time. Why? Because obesity at the age of 6-12 years impacts the overall children’s development. Moreover, it may induce further physiological and mental disorders in a child and poor academic performances (Yau, Castro, Tagani, Tsui, & Convit, 2012).
On the other side, we are aware of mobile phones’ benefits, but we rarely know about the disadvantages and the percentage of using smartphones is increasing among children.
The NPR organization (2019) report claims that 53% of 11 years old children have their personal smartphones. Also, children who spend almost four or five hours each day with a smartphone are more likely to be obese and have health risks.
