Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity continues to be a major concern in the United States. We evaluate obesity prevention efforts in schools, preschools, and communities. We have examined the impacts of obesity prevention programs on body mass index (BMI), physical activity, and fitness using rigorous methods, including randomized controlled trials. We have also studied the link between childhood obesity and children's diets, including participation in school meal programs.
