Nemours Data Show Childhood Overweight and Obesity Leveling Off in Delaware
Date:3/2/2010

NEWARK, Del., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The prevalence of overweight and obesity among Delaware children, ages 2-17, shows a flattening of the trajectory – no change- between 2006 and 2008.  Because overweight and obesity rates had previously been climbing rapidly, the leveling-off is cause for optimism reports Nemours in the March 2010 edition of Health Affairs, a peer-reviewed publication and the country's most respected health policy journal. The research was funded in part by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

"Reversing the trend of overweight and obesity is a long-term prospect, but seeing the rates plateau in Delaware is quite promising," said Debbie I. Chang, MPH, Nemours, Vice President of Policy and Prevention and the lead author on the article. Nemours conducts the Delaware Survey of Children's Health to collect parent-reported information about the weight and behaviors of children aged 2-17.
