Sarah Carsley, Laura Anderson, Patricia Parkin, Jonathon Maguire (Team ABC3 Co-Investigators) and Catherine Birken (Team ABC3 Project Leader), on behalf of the TARGet Kids! Collaboration looked to determine the prevalence of severe obesity in young children and to examine the association with cardiometabolic risk factors (Carsley et al., Childhood Obesity, 2017).

Geoff Ball (Team ABC3 Project Leader), Arnaldo Perez (Team ABC3 Co-Investigator) and Joseph Skelton (Team ABC3 Scientific Advisory Board member) wrote a letter to the editor regarding recently published clinical practice guidelines for preventing and treating childhood obesity, pointing out the the comprehensive report did not mention two relevant issues: attrition and enrollment (Ball et al., JCEM, 2017).

Mark Tremblay (Team ABC3 Co-Investigator) on behalf of the Sedentary Behavior Research Network aimed to further develop consensus definitions for terms related to sedentary behavior research, for all age groups and for all physical abilities (Tremblay et al., Int J Behav Nutr Phys Act, 2017).

Catherine Birken (Team ABC3 Project Leader) and Jonathon Maguire (Team ABC3 Co-Investigator) on behalf of the TARGet Kids! Collaboration aimed to determine whether there is an association between noncow milk consumption and lower height in childhood and assess whether cow milk consumption mediates the relation between noncow milk consumption and height (Morency et al., Am J Clin Nutr, 2017).

Louise Masse (Team ABC3 Project Leader) recently published a paper describing the development of an integrated conceptual framework for assessing the practices that influence multiple aspects of 5 to 12 year old children’s participation in physical activity (Masse et al., BMC Public Health, 2017).
