Abstract

Childhood obesity and associated risks result in premature cardiovascular damage and disease with a consequent, large burden to society. There are causes for childhood obesity that are rooted in the socioeconomic milieu. Interventions that are population-based, and aimed towards prevention as opposed to treatment, are likely to be most effective in curtailing childhood obesity. Reforms to federal and state managed social welfare programs provide a compelling opportunity to affect the course and consequences of childhood obesity.
