Quick Facts

  • In Canada, over 2 million children are overweight or obese; 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.
