Risk Factors for Childhood Obesity

CBC- Braintrust on Obesity, 2007 Drs. Kathy Burke & Starr Eaddy


Barriers to addressing obesity in minority children and adolescents

Barriers to addressing obesity in minority children and adolescents.

  • Environmental Barriers

    • To physical activity 2,3,5

      • high neighborhood crime rates that discourage outdoor activities

      • dilapidated parks, and

      • reduced access to facilities

    • To good nutrition 2,4,5

      • more fast-food restaurants

      • few supermarkets that carry fresh produce

      • small grocery stores that sell high-fat, energy-dense foods

      • greater exposure to televised commercials for high-calorie, low-nutrient food

  • Cultural Barriers5

    • Those who do not maintain normal weight outnumber those who do; thus, overweight is often the community norm.

    • Caloric restriction and leisure-time physical activity are not routine in minority communities.

  • The Meadowlands Environment Center was formed to increase awareness and enjoyment of our vital ecosystem. The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and Ramapo College of New Jersey entered into a partnership in 2003, to develop a comprehensive environmental education program for schools and the general public.

  • The Meadowlands Environment Center has hands on educational programs for grades K-12. Our experienced team of educators will introduce your students to a variety of topics while satisfying the NJCCCS. Through inquiry learning  and cross-curricular activites, you and your students will experience the best of these unique wetlands.
