Diet, physical activity and behavioural interventions for the treatment of overweight or obese children from the age of 6 to 11 years.

 
As per the report of the Public Health Agency of Canada, the rate of obese children is
high, and there were 30 children between 5-17 years that can be considered as overweight or
obese (Bozkurt et al., 2018). The Body Mass Index (BMI) of an obese person is more than
30, where an overweight individual has a BMI range of 25-30. The aim of the paper is to
critically review an article, ‘Diet, physical activity and behavioral interventions for the
treatment of overweight or obese children from the age of 6 to 11 years’ in order to address
the issue of childhood obesity in the current context.
Rationale of the type of study design used
The purpose of the article is to assess the impact of diet, behavioral intervention, and
physical activity for treating wither overweight or obese children between the age of 6 to 11
years old (Mead et al., 2016). It was a systematic review that included study design used in
this particular review was 70 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that included 8461
participants that include all the variables presented in the aim. From the perspective of
Snyder et al., (2016), it can be stated that the study design used in the research was
appropriate in nature as the observational study will not be able to determine the impact of
the variables on the target population. It specifically focused on understanding the effects of
diet, physical activity, and behavioral intervention upon the treatment process of the
participants. The study was conducted in thirty-one trials that involve reporting of adverse
events as well as a meta-analysis for assessing the impact on treatment and post-
interventional period. Therefore, it included a large number of studies that gave a wide range
of perceptions to testify to the outcome. The use of both qualitative and quantitative studies
has enhanced the context of the particular research enabling the audience to understand th
