Exploración del papel de la obesidad infantil en la salud de la comunidad

La prevalencia de obesidad infantil se ha visto incrementada en forma significativa en los últimos años. Existe por lo tanto una necesidad crucial de aplicar medidas que sean rentables para reducir la aparición de complicaciones metabólicas. De hecho, la elaboración de una estrategia integral basada en la evidencia científica y bien apoyada con una campaña de educación para la salud, podría, sin duda, reducir la magnitud de la obesidad infantil en los años venideros.
