Prevalence of obesity in 6- and 9-year-old children living in Central-North Italy Analysis of determinants and indicators of risk of overweight


, : Prevalence of obesity in 6- and 9-year-old children living in Central-North Italy Analysis of determinants and indicators of risk of overweight. Obesity Reviews: 1, 4-10

The objective of our article is to survey the prevalence of overweight and obesity among 6- and 9-year-old children in Emilia-Romagna, a region of Central-North Italy, and to study the eating habits and behaviours of these children and their families. During 2003 and 2005, we analysed a stratified sample of the general population of children attending pre-school (2681 children aged 6 years) and primary school (2955 children aged 9 years).

The embossing process is shown to have the supplementary virtue to incre...
