Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Obesity usually develops at school age and adolescence, though cases of an earlier start are also possible. Interventions in the form of dietary intake, diet composition, overall lifestyle, etc. also begin at that age. However, recent research has identified an increased deposition of fat and changes in body composition  in the younger age categories, e.g., secular comparisons of thigh circumference remaining the same in preschoolers, but skinfold thickness higher, indicating an obvious reduction in muscle development. This is the result of an undesirable balance of energy intake and energy output, with lifestyle evaluations indicating mostly increased intake of food of undesirable composition and reduced physical activity levels. This is present even among preschool children, who are found to have reduced opportunities for  physical activity, games, and exercise.
