Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major public health concern worldwide, including in South Asian countries. South Asians are known to have a higher prevalence and incidence of CVD, with an earlier age of onset and more severe disease progression compared to other populations. Additionally, the risk factors for CVD in South Asian children are increasing due to changing lifestyles, including physical inactivity, unhealthy diets, and increasing rates of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Inculcating healthy habits in children is crucial for their long-term well-being and can play a significant role in reducing the risk of heart disease. The South Asian community in Canada is particularly susceptible to heart disease, making it even more important to focus on promoting healthy habits in children from a young age. This article aims to provide an overview of strategies for reducing the risk of CVD in South Asian children through prevention and lifestyle modifications.
