WHO – Nuovo report sull’obesità infantile “Taking Action on Childhood Obesity”
In response, all countries have agreed a set of global targets for halting the increase in obesity. This includes no increase in overweight among children under age 5, school-age children or adolescents by 2025 (from 2010 levels). Action to reverse the epidemic is the focus of the recommendations made by the WHO Commission on Ending Childhood Obesity and is one of the main objectives of the Decade of Action on Nutrition.
Although most countries are still off-track to meet the 2025 targets, many are taking action and some have achieved a levelling-off in childhood obesity rates. Investing in children’s health will help meet the global health targets and substantially reduce the predicted health and economic costs of obesity. This report illustrates the progress being made, with examples of actions at national level.
