Abstract

Obesity has been recognized as a critical and challenging world health issue of the twenty-first century.  This threatening issue among the young of Thailand has now prompted action from all parties concerned in health organizations and health education.  Despite the fact that obesity statistical figures in Thailand appear less critical than those in European countries, Thailand is now standing as rank 2 in obesity problems among ASEAN countries.  The trend as such in Thailand has continued to rise in number.  In this regard, the researcher would like to explore obesity as reported in literature and research from local and international sources to identify the current conditions of obesity among the young, especially school-aged children from Kindergarten 1 to Secondary 6.

The results of this documentary research point to causes of this health problem: (1) unhealthy eating behaviors, (2) lack of knowledge in nutrition and diets, and (3) family and social environment.  The researcher recommended possible solutions to this problem on the ground of health education.  Obesity as a preventive health issue should be integrated into the Health Curriculum of the Ministry Education Thailand; this is to educate the young about their eating behaviors, diets, and lifestyle to maintain their physical well-being in the long run.

Keywords: The Young, Obesity, Health Education
