AAP Childhood Overweight and Obesity
Welcome to the AAP Web site dedicated to the prevention of childhood overweight and obesity. The purpose of this site is to bring awareness to the serious health problem of childhood overweight and obesity; empower pediatricians and families to take action in their homes, offices and communities to prevent childhood obesity; and to support pediatricians, families and community advocates in improving the health status of those children who are already overweight and obese.
The Academy acknowledges the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) for its generous support for the integration and coordination of the Academy's obesity initiatives.
