Overview: Obesity in children and adolescents is a complex and very often chronic condition. Besides encouraging healthy eating and increasing activity—both excellent behavioral measures—healthcare providers did not have a clear, evidence-based plan for managing this chronic condition until recently. In January, the AAP published its long-awaited new, evidence-based guidelines for the evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents with obesity. Greatly anticipated, it did, however, create some controversy. Please join us as we discuss the new guidelines, the evidence that it is based on, and how it may change practice.
