Abstract

An overwhelming body of evidence indicates a need for obesity prevention and treatment programs for American youth. In the 1970s, only 6% to 8% of USchildren and adolescents were significantly overweight; by the early 1990s, this figure increased to approximately 11%. Obesity in childhood and adolescence is linked with several short-term medical risks, including abnormalglucose tolerance, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, sleep apnea, and orthopedic complications.
