Leave a comment

imagesTwo years ago, the Commission on Ending Childhood Obesity (ECHO) was tasked with producing a report to identify promising approaches and interventions to address childhood obesity at the global level.

Recently, ECHO presented its final report to the WHO Director-General. The group proposed 6 main recommendations for governments to take action on, including:

1) Promote intake of healthy foods

2) Promote physical activity

3) Preconception and pregnancy care

4) Early childhood diet and physical activity

5) Health, nutrition and physical activity for school-age children

6) Weight management.

The full report is available here: WHO – Ending Childhood Obesity
