Abstract

Over the last thirty years the proportion of children in the United States who are overweight or obese has been increasing, reflecting the dramatic trend that has been witnessed in the adult population. The significance of this trend is enormous when we consider the medical complications of obesity, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, gall bladder disease and the increased risk of certain types of cancer. Unquestionably, the best solution to the obesity problem is prevention, or at least, early intervention.

There are many diet schemes that promise quick, effortless results. The only legitimate approach to dealing with childhood obesity, however, is one that stresses improved fitness rather than weight loss. SLIM DOWN is an acronym developed after years of counseling overweight children in a private pediatric office setting. The emphasis is on incorporating healthy habits as part of a child's lifestyle. The goal is not a better weight, but better health.
