3. Childhood and Adult Obesity Recommendations

  • Multidisciplinary approaches to obesity management in children and young people are required with a 'lifetime risk' message. These include interventions during the early post-partum period as well as regular monitoring of childhood weight and family counselling.
  • With appropriate training all health care professions should be able to Ask and Assess adiposity and Advise appropriate adult patients on evidence based ways to target weight change.
