Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the developed world and is on the rise in the developing world as well. The nutrition and physical activity transition, in parallel with the current obesogenic environment, has created a challenging milieu in which to combat obesity. There is evidence to suggest that early intervention is the wisest strategy and that there are critical periods during growth and development when preventive efforts or treatment intervention are thought to be most effective. The focus of this special issue will be on critical periods of weight management during which the development of healthy lifestyle behaviours is paramount. We will accept original research papers and short review papers deemed relevant.
