Pediatric obesity prevalence in the U.S. has been on the rise for the past few decades. Providers of pediatric patients need to be able to properly define pediatric weight concerns (overweight and obesity) in order to accurately diagnose and therefore help manage the problem.

Current guidelines to help define and manage pediatric weight concerns are discussed in this lecture.
