Importance and Scope

Childhood obesity is a serious medical disorder that affects children and adolescents. It occurs when a child is well above the normal weight for his or her age and height. As methods to regulator body fat directly are difficult, the diagnosis of obesity is often based on Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is a measure used to determine childhood overweight and obesity. Overweight is well-defined as a BMI at or above the 85th percent and below the 95th percent for children and teens of the same age and sex. Obesity is definite as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex.

BMI is calculated by measure of a person's weight in kilograms by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age and sex specific and is often termed as BMI-for-age. This is because children's body structure varies as they age and varies among boys and girls. Hence, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relation to other children of the similar age and sex.

Childhood Obesity prevention will need to both individual and social/cultural change in way of life. A large volume of current research will help clarify what will be most helpful. Hope Childhood Obesity 2017 would make it half the way.

Why Italy

Italy is well-known for its healthy way of life and Mediterranean diet – but the country is facing severe future health problems because of its overweight children. Reports state that the number of overweight and obese children in Italy was “among the most noteworthy on the planet" and that this will "provoke a greater demand for healthcare in the future.” As indicated by the OECD information, Greece has the most astounding rate of overweight and obese kids (5-17 aged) on the globe, followed by Italy, U.S. furthermore, Mexico. Italy's younger generation are increasingly eating more processed foods, more fast foods and more sugary desserts and beverages. A striking example of this can be seen in an aggressive publicizing effort dispatched by Coca-Cola in Italy in 2011.

Childhood Obesity rates are notoriously considered one of the highest (36% for boys and 34% for girls) In addition, WHO projections forewarn that by 2030 rising prevalence could see sickness rates almost twofold for specific populaces. In a country renowned for its regional variations in cuisine, Italians try not to take after an unbending arrangement of eating traditions, making it less demanding for commercial food advertisers to exploit. Considering the above criteria Italy would be the finest places for a conference on Childhood Obesity.
