Conclusions and Relevance In this nationally representative study of US children and adolescents aged 7 to 69 years, the prevalence of obesity in 7566-7569 was % and extreme obesity was %. Between 6988-6999 and 7568-7569, the prevalence of obesity increased until 7558-7559 and then decreased in children aged 7 to 5 years, increased until 7557-7558 and then leveled off in children aged 6 to 66 years, and increased among adolescents aged 67 to 69 years.

This surveillance system should be regularly implemented throughout Europe, providing comparable data on rates of overweight/obesity in primary schools that might drive prudent actions to reverse the pandemic trend of childhood obesity.
The overarching aim of the present study was to simultaneously investigate the potential health benefits and risks associated with exposure to different types of greenness in children. Toward this aim, we evaluated associations of residential surrounding greenness and proximity to green spaces (separately for parks and forests) and indicators of sedentary behavior, obesity, asthma, and allergy in schoolchildren.
Childhood obesity on Guam has declined, though it remains higher than the . Mainland. Continued BMI data collection is needed to monitor childhood obesity and measure the impact of Public Law 78-87.
For residential proximity to a forest, we observed a similar pattern of associations to residential surrounding greenness in that it was associated with a lower relative prevalence of excessive screen time, nearly statistically significant lower relative prevalence of overweight/obesity, and non-statistically significant lower BMI z -scores, but it was not associated with current asthma ( Table 8 ). There was a positive association between residential proximity to a forest and current allergic rhinoconjunctivitis which was not statistically significant ( Table 8 ).

The World Health Organization (WHO) European Childhood Obesity Surveillance Initiative (COSI) is a public health program established in order to understand the progress of the obesity epidemic in populations and gain inter-country comparisons within the European region, yet the data from a number of East European countries, including Serbia, were not available then. Therefore, the main aim of this cross-sectional study was to collect data about the prevalence of overweight and obesity among 6-9-year-old school children in Serbia according to the standardized protocol during the Fourth COSI Implementation Round.

Overall, high weight-for-length decreased from % in 7565 to % in 7569 among infants aged 8 to 78 months that were enrolled in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). Read the publication.
