Body mass index (BMI) is a standardized weight for height measure widely used for diagnosis of adult overweight and obesity. It is defined as the weight of a person in kilograms, divided in meters by the square of his height. An estimated 38.2 million children under 5 years old were overweight or obese in 2019. Once considered a problem with high income countries, overweight and obesity are now on the rise in low and middle income countries, particularly in urban environments. In Africa , the number of children under 5 who are overweight has risen since 2000 by almost 24. Depression is a widespread illness worldwide and affects more than 264 million people.

Sampling method followed was simple random sampling.
