Resources for preventing childhood obesity and for improving care of children who are overweight.
NICHQ aims to eliminate the US obesity epidemic by working with policy makers, clinical improvement professionals and healthcare professionals to ensure that every child has access to high-quality care. Even as early as conception, parents, healthcare providers and leaders can take steps to keep children fit and on track for a healthy future.
The resources in this toolkit are designed to help primary care practice teams provide coordinated, integrated and multidisciplinary services to both prevent obesity and improve care for children who are already overweight or at risk for becoming overweight. Includes tools for prevention, assessment and diagnosis, management and treatment and community resources.
