26 Sep Interventions for preventing obesity in children
Posted at 10:45h in Healthy Community
Strategies for changing both diet and physical activity for children to help prevent overweight or obesity are effective in making modest reductions in BMI in children up to the age of 12. Less evidence was found for adolescents and young people aged 13 to 18.
This review suggests that interventions to prevent childhood obesity do not appear to result in adverse effects or health inequalities.
