- 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.
