obese children

This report and the associated searchable database summarise schemes to promote healthy weight among obese and overweight children in England for which the EPPI-Centre were able to obtain data. In order to be included in the database, schemes needed a primary focus on tackling overweight or obesity in school-age children (4-18 years) who were already overweight or obese, through dietary, exercise or other means. Included interventions had to be structured and sustained over a period of time.This systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 2008.
