question development, and research planning and project management skills.
This assessment involves developing a research question, conducting a thorough literature
eview, defining a gap in the literature, expressing a research question, describing the
methodology and methods that will be used to answer the research question, and
developing a GANTT chart to guide use of time in Capstone B.
It assesses the key understanding necessary for conceptualising and developing a research

Topic- Obesity in Children
Introduction
Child Obesity is a one of the serious medical conditions in present times which becomes a trouble when the child gain few extra pounds according to height and age of the child. It is responsible for increasing depression, poor self-esteem, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and other ailments in children at a very young age. Since 1975 this problem has been increasing three folds among children. At present most of the population are living those countries where people are dying of obesity as compared to underweight or malnutrition. Children are exposed to high-sugar, high-salt, high-fat and micronutrients deficient food which is attractive and tasty to eat but fails in healthier aspect (WHO, 2021).
Background of obesity
It has been observed that 1 in every four children in Australia between the age of 2-17 is either overweight or obese. This constitutes 8% of child population which was recorded in 2017-18. There are many factors which are contributes in obesity primarily is energy imbalance (AIHW, 2020). Apart from his other reasons like dramatic weight gain in infancy, history of obesity in family, poor sleep, exposure to unhealthy food, spending more time in front of screens, high pressure of competition in studies and ignoring the importance of physical health. Such children face teasing and bullying at school, lead a poor quality of mental and social life.
Project aim
The project aims at investigating how deeply the problem of obesity is distu
ing the growth of children. It also studies how it is shaping different behavioural changes in children in context to obesity they or their friends have. The researcher will stick to this particular concern to understand the reasons in detail and their impact on society and upcoming generation.
Rationale of Research Problem
The main issue behind the study is obesity is increasing like a epidemic in the country with more than 150 million children getting affected by it. Childhood and adolescents obesity is not only problematic in a particular age but also create health problems in young age like pre-maturing of age or acquiring any chronic disease. This problem is not only crippling future generation but also raising concern towards eating habits as well. High calorie intake and absence of adequate information about them leads to promoting such foods on social media and attract the young segment towards it is a common practice in the market. Therefore, it is required to create awareness in the society about this problem and encourage children to opt for a lifestyle which is equally holistic and healthy.
Literature Review
· Obesity in children is an emerging concern in developed and developing countries. As its existence is getting stronger and looking into future implications like cardiovascular and diabetic conditions and other health related abnormalities it is categorized as serious health problem (WMA, 2016). The shopping trends and food preferences all over the world are actively targeting children as their prime consumers and influencing them as decision makers of the family. Various offers and discounts are given to increase the demand in stores at physical and social level. Many advertisements are also blamed for misguiding parents and children about the nutritional constituents in the product.
· During studies it has been found that the products which are advised on social media and on television contains less or zero nutritional value (Mo
issey, Taveras, Allender & Strugnell, 2020). They contain high sugar content and artificial flavors in the name of taste. Due to their interest in toys which accompany the product or out of hunger children try such products and get accustomed to their taste ditching healthy options.
Screen time is also one of the reason behind increasing obesity among children as they indulge in impulsive binge and lost a track on their diet. They prefer unhealthy options to satisfy they...
