Abstract

Children, young people and their families depend on their primary care medical team for most planned and unscheduled care. On average one in four consultations in primary care concerns children. A preschool child is likely to come in contact with the primary care team six times a year and a school age child three times a year. This chapter focuses on the management of childhood obesity in primary care.
