Summary
  • Childhood obesity is a growing problem with approximately 25% of Australian school children overweight or obese. Research indicates an annual increase of this figure of 1-1.5%, a trend which suggests that half of all young Australians will be overweight by the year 2025. This presents an enormous public health concern and has implications for lifelong chronic disease
  • Previously "adult" health issues such as high blood pressure, type-2 diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome are becoming increasingly evident in obese children, and impact on the development of these children into adulthood. Many of the factors affecting childhood obesity can be readily managed. However unlike many medical conditions, children's lifestyles choices are influenced by a wide range of factors, many of which are out of the control of the children
  • This program examines the problem of childhood obesity and its effects on the physical, emotional and social development of children and adolescents. The program explores current research into the large range of external factors and attitudes that influence weight gain in younger Australians, with a focus on rural and remote communities. Finally, examining intervention programs and strategies illustrates the difference health professionals, families, teachers and communities can and are making in stemming the expanding obesity problem
