  • This calls for parents and family members to take initiative in the provision of the right food portions, promote bodily activity, exploit actions of everyday living, and reduce inactive behaviors.

3 institutional childhood obesity prevention
3. Institutional childhood obesity prevention:

  • Schools are viewed as a central place where children nutritional and physical activity level can be managed.

4 community level prevention

  • The community is involved in structural changes that enhance diet variation along with bodily activities.


  • Health care settings provide an opportune moment to check on the child’s growth rate as well as abnormal body weight.
