Generation Z, also known as millennials are the children born between the mid-90s to recent times. There is a growing concern about the physical fitness of this generation of children, because they have adopted a lifestyle very sedentary, with poor eating habits. Instead of taking part in outdoor activities, these children stay inside most of the time, keep away from anything involving physical activities. In addition to this, the lifestyle changes on the part of their parents has caused them to adopt a diet that consists mainly of processed foods that have negative side effects in the long term. This is a lifestyle that makes them susceptible to many diseases that could easily increase the mortality rate of this age group.
