CHILHOOD OBESITY/CHILDHOOD OVERWEIGHT

Posted May 07 2009 9:22pm
Who is the most at risk?
 Although overweight has increased for all children and adolescents over time, recent data indicate disparities among racial/ethnic groups. 
• Non-Hispanic black girls and Mexican American girls are more likely to have high BMI for age than non-Hispanic white girls. 
• Among boys, Mexican Americans are more likely to have high BMI for age than non-Hispanic white boys.
