Children's perceptions of weight, obesity, nutrition, physical activity and related health and socio-behavioural factors.

Approximately one-third of children in the US are either overweight or obese. Understanding the perceptions of children is an important factor in reversing this trend. An online survey was conducted with children to capture their perceptions of weight, overweight, nutrition, physical activity and related socio-behavioural factors. This paper, based on research conducted by ChildObesity180, discusses the results. See abstract.
