The Children’s International Obesity Foundation is dedicated to predicting, preventing, treating, and ultimately eliminating childhood overweight and obesity. This increasingly costly and painful health epidemic is affecting the world’s population of babies, youngsters, adolescents and young adults.
The Foundation will aggressively fund research into the underlying causalities of obesity. These includes genetic predispositions, biochemical and physiological factors, and environmental influences as well as nutrition, exercise, and physical fitness issues stemming from an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. We will utilize contributions to pay for targeted programs and other assistance.
