Childhood obesity is a serious medical condition that affects children and adolescents. It occurs when a child is well above the normal weight for his or her age and height.

Scope and Importance:
Childhood obesity Conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Childhood obesity is the disorder concerned that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of childhood obesity.
Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic in the world. It affects more than 30 percent of children, making it the most common chronic disease of childhood. This number has more than tripled since 1980.
Childhood obesity is a health issue. Today, more and more children are being diagnosed with diabetes, hypertension and other co-morbid conditions associated with obesity and morbid obesity.
A child is defined as “affected by obesity” if their body mass index-for-age (or BMI-for-age) percentile is greater than 95 percent. A child is defined as “overweight” if their BMI-for-age percentile is greater than 85 percent and less than 95 percent.
Levels of Childhood obesity are increasing at alarming rates in many countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia. In Australia, one in five children and adolescents are either overweight or obese.
Childhood Obesity conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of:
1. Child health
It also provides the platform for researchers, scholars and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Childhood Obesity.
Childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century. One of the biggest issues facing is the U.S. is the childhood obesity epidemic. Approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years are obese.1 Over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates in America have tripled, and today, nearly one in three children in America are and overweight or obese. Less physical activity in schools, increased portion sizes, and spending more time watching TV and playing video games are just a few factors that have led to this epidemic.
Children with obesity are at risk for developing these health problems:
• High blood glucose (sugar) or diabetes
• High blood pressure (hypertension)
• High blood cholesterol and triglycerides (dyslipidemia or high blood fats)
• Heart attacks due to coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, and stroke later in life
• Bone and joint problems -- more weight puts pressure on the bones and joints. This can lead to osteoarthritis, a disease that causes joint pain and stiffness.
• Stopping breathing during sleep (sleep apnea). This can cause daytime fatigue or sleepiness, poor attention, and problems at work.
Obese girls are more likely not to have regular menstrual periods.
Obese children often have low self-esteem. They are more likely to be teased or bullied, and they may have a hard time making friends.
Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.1, 2
The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2012. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to nearly 21% over the same period.1, 2
In 2012, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese.1
Overweight is defined as having excess body weight for a particular height from fat, muscle, bone, water, or a combination of these factors.3 Obesity is defined as having excess body fat.4
Overweight and obesity are the result of “caloric imbalance” too few calories expended for the amount of calories consumed and are affected by various genetic, behavioral, and environmental factors
