Childhood Obesity Management

What is Childhood Obesity

Obesity increases the risk factors for children’s health. A child is defined as obese if their Body Mass Index (BMI) is greater than 85% of children and teens of the same age and sex. Assess your child's BMI HERE

Treatment for Childhood Obesity

Treatment for childhood obesity is based on your child's age and if he or she has other medical conditions.

Treatment can include:

  • Changes in your child's eating habits
  • Changes in your child’s physical activity level

In certain circumstances, treatment might include medications or weight-loss surgery.

Childhood Obesity Assessment

If you have concerns about your child’s weight, diet or activity level, a medical assessment maybe a good place to start.
