Tackling Obesity in Early Childhood: Prevention, Prevention, Prevention
Obesity has reached epidemic levels in recent years. Currently, the average obesity rate in the European Union is 15.5%, and even more alarmingly, the prevalence of overweight children was estimated at 30% in 2006.
This timely International Symposium reignites the debate on how to work towards an effective EU-wide action plan on tackling obesity in children. With a central theme of prevention and early intervention, the symposium not only focuses on the unaddressed very early years of a child's life but will also highlight the pre-conceptual years and the crucial role played by parents.
The Symposium will support the exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking topical debate whilst sharing best practices and lessons learned.
