Though many factors contribute to cause obesity, the largest single cause is poor information. Many parents and guardians, in addition to children themselves, fail to see the consequences of what would seem like a collection of harmless habits. With the knowledge of causation- ranging from imbalanced diets to lack- of exercise, parents, guardians, and children can be better equipped to combat obesity.

Many factors can be attributed as causation to obesity, but it is best to consider that the largest all-encompassing factor is poor information. If parents and guardians become more aware of practical applications (such as avoiding particular ingredients), we could expect the incidence of obesity to decrease over time.
