Prevention of pediatric overweight and obesity

Prevention of Pediatric Overweight and Obesity

  • American Academy of Pediatrics - August, 2003

  • Probability of childhood obesity persisting into adulthood…

    • 80% during adolescence

    • 20% at 4 years of age

    • Probability that co-morbidities will persist into adulthood

  • AAP, Policy Statement, Pediatrics 112(2), pp.424-430


Economic costs

Economic Costs

  • US obesity-attributable medical expenditures in 2003:

    • $75 billion

    • Approximately 10% of total US medical expenditures

  • Percent financed by taxpayers through Medicare and Medicaid

    • Approximately 50%


Which begs the question

Which begs the question…

What might the statistics look like if kids in the U.S. had positive, daily physical education for 12 years of school?

Physical education s role in the obesity epidemic

Physical Education’s Role in the Obesity Epidemic

  • Physical inactivity is part of the problem

  • Physical activity is part of the solution

  • Physical education is a critical to increasing physical activity

    • School physical education programs are the one place that:

      • All children can participate in regular physical activity

National call to action increase physical activity among youth

National Call to Action: Increase Physical Activity Among Youth

  • Healthy People 2010 (2000)

  • Dietary Guidelines for Americans (2000)

  • Promoting Better Health for Young People Through Physical Activity and Sports: A Report to the President from the Secretary of Health and Human Services and Secretary of Education (2000)

  • The Surgeon General’s Call to Action To Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity (2001)

  • Guide to Community Preventive Services (2001)


The brain body connection

The Brain/Body Connection

  • Research has not been conducted to conclusively demonstrate a link between physical activity and improved academic performance

  • However, such a link might be expected

  • Research does show that:

    • Movement stimulates brain functioning

    • Physical activity increases adolescents’ self-esteem and reduces anxiety and stress…thus, through it’s effects on mental health, may help increase students’ capacity for learning

    • Increases in time for physical education did not lead to lower test scores


Time in the arts physical education and school achievement

Time in the arts, physical education and school achievement

  • 547 elementary school principals in Virginia responded to survey

  • Time allocated for art, music and physical education with a specialist?

  • Correlated with test scores from their schools

  • No meaningful relationship found

  • Results suggest that providing time for AMPE does not negatively impact test scores

  • Wilkins, J..M., Graham, G., Parker, S., Westfall, S. Fraser, R. & Tembo, M. (2003).

  • Time in the arts and physical education and school achievement. Journal of Curriculum Studies, 35, 721-734.

  • Physical education is the only curricular subject that develops a child’s physical self

  • Children deserve a comprehensive education

    • It’s up to taxpayers and decision-makers to make this happen

    • It’s up to us (and our partners) to influence taxpayers and decision-makers
