Obesity in Children – Resources for Parents and Physicians

>> Wednesday, July 2, 2014

A recent issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal contained a short article about how to approach the issue of obesity in a young child.  In the article was a list of online resources that I thought would be useful to share:

A Health Professional's Guide for Using the New WHO Growth Charts

Is My Child Growing Well? Questions and Answers for Parents

NutriSTEP--Nutrition Screening Tool for Every Preschooler

Canadian Paediatric Society on child obesity

Caring for Kids--information for parents from Canada's pediatricians 

Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines and Canadian Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines (by age group)

Canadian Obesity Network--pediatrics page

Summary report of expert committee recommendations on prevention, assessment and 
treatment of child and adolescent overweight and obesity

Hello, I am wondering if you have any resources for children + obesity + autism??

Dr. Sue Pedersen July 8, 2014 at 6:00 AM  

Great question, Loretta - not off the top of my head, but I'll ask around and post here if I come up with anything.

Dr Sue


I am excited that you have arrived at my site, and I hope you are too - consider this the first step towards a Healthier New You!! As a medical doctor, Endocrinologist, and obesity specialist, I am absolutely passionate about helping people with weight management. Though there is certainly no magic cure for obesity, there IS a successful treatment plan out there for you - it is all about understanding the elements that contribute to your personal weight struggle, and then finding the treatment plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. The way to finding your personal solution is to learn as much as you can about obesity: how our toxic environment has shaped us into an overweight society; the diversity of contributors to obesity; and what the treatment options out there are really all about. Knowledge Is Power!!

Are you ready to change your life? Let's begin our journey together, towards a healthier, happier you!!
