Early childhood Development is more rapid during these early years than at any other time after birth, and young children’s early experiences are “built into their bodies,” affecting neural, metabolic, and behavioral systems in ways that can influence the risk for obesity, health, and well- being through the life span.
…and still more. Information Needs –Track Childhood Obesity Indicators –Communication- impressive untapped capacity for coordinated communication Systems Approach –Childhood obesity is a large complex, multi- sector issue Treatment
