Progress in Preventing Childhood Obesity: How Do We Measure Up? (Obesity Prevention) by Institute of Medicine, Food and Nutrition Board, Committee on Progress in Preventing Childhood Obesity

The remarkable increase in the prevalence of obesity among children and youth in the United States over a relatively short time span represents one of the defining public health challenges of the 21st century. The country is beginning to recognize childhood obesity as a major public health epidemic that will incur substantial costs to the nation. However, the current level of investment by the public and private sectors still does not match the extent of the problem. There is a substantial underinvestment of resource to adequately address the scope of this obesity crisis.
