Child hood obesity

Complete the following assignment and upload the document to the assignment portal. There are 4 questions to complete

Celine’s parents are concerned about their daughter’s weight.

 Although neither of her parents is overweight, 9-year-old Celine, whom they adopted 2 years ago, weighs about 30 percent more than the average girl of her age and height.

“We just can’t understand it,” they lament. “She’s tried several diets and still can’t lose weight! She’s so upset that all she does is mope around the house all day. What can we do to help our daughter?”

 To advise Celine’s parents, you obviously need more information. Your task in this exercise is twofold. First, generate a list of questions you might ask to help pinpoint the cause(s) of Celine’s weight problem.
Each question should focus on a
specific biological, social, or behavioral influence that might cause obesity.
Then, for each question, explain how the answer will help you determine the cause of Celine’s weight problem and what you might recommend as a result.

To help you get started, one question is provided – complete the reason for asking and recommendation for Question #1 also.
