ABSTRACT

Primary obesity in children, one of the most common nutrition diseases in the world, shows particularities depending on the age regarding the risk factors, prevention and treatment. The aim of the study was the assessment of preschool patients diagnosed with primary obesity in the 3rd Clinic of Pediatrics, “Sf. Maria” Children’s Emergency Hospital Iasi, in order to identify the onset of overweight/obesity and the prenatal and postnatal risk factors from the first 6 years of life involved in causing obesity. We conclude that in order to combat obesity the emphasis should be on prevention, particularly important being the measures that promote healthy eating and combat sedentariness.

Keywords: obesity, preschool children, alimentary excess, sedentariness
