Quick Facts

  • In Canada, over 2 million children have overweight or obesity; many will grow up to become adults with obesity.
  • Obesity in adulthood is associated with chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Little is known about how best to help children with obesity and their families become healthier.
  • By working together, we can create a strong evidence base to support pediatric weight management.
Many of the resources will be available to non-members (though we strongly encourage you to join the Canadian Obesity Network). In some instances, you will need to login for access.
