Interesting question. I am going to say that the environment does have an affect on children being obese. Saying this I am focusing on the environment that we call civilization. The majority of towns and cities are heavily car dependent. Children no longer walk, run or bike to a friends house. They instead get picked up or dropped off via a vehicle or public transportation.
Instead of playing in backyards or going on hikes, many America children just sit in front of the tv, video game system, or a computer.
Yes, childhood obesity correlates with certain environmental factors. Children raised in affluent countries are much more likely to be obese than those raised developing states. This can be due to increased availability of “fast foods” as well as an increasingly-sedentary lifestyle.
