Many obese children have pathological conditions that mostly regress after weight reduction. Interventions aimed at children who have not yet reached adolescence usually include nutrition/diet advice, physical training programmes and behavioural therapies, but rarely focus on parental responsibility. The authors describe their experiences in Northern Italy of using an outpatient multidisciplinary three-month intervention for childhood obesity that includes a high degree of parental involvement.
