Tewfik, Ihab (2008) Childhood obesity prevention (CHOP) programme: a conceptual framework for nutrition intervention. International Journal of Food Safety, Nutrition and Public Health, 1 (1). pp. 16-32. ISSN 1479-3911Full text not available from this repository.
The prevalence and severity of people suffering from obesity has increased markedly worldwide. The WHO declared obesity a 'crisis of epidemic proportion'. This article outlines a conceptual framework for an intervention programme over three year period that can be easily adapted to prevent childhood obesity. The presented approach is based on behaviour modification model without giving foods. Family, school and children are essential counterparts to achieve meaningful improvement. Advocated by policies makers and embraced with favourite environmental factors, CHOP programme could be the conceptual framework for nutrition intervention that can be effectively integrated within the national health framework to attain public health goals.
