In recognition of Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, the team at SurveyHealthcare is
releasing exclusive findings from a recent research-on-research engagement, focusing on Childhood
Obesity. We surveyed 225+ healthcare professionals from our proprietary community on their
prescribing habits, treatment recommendations, and follow-up routines.
Our research was based on insights from Primary Care Physicians, Nurse Practitioners/Physician
Assistants, Endocrinologists, Pediatricians, Dietitians, Nutritionists and Bariatricians.
SHG also found that only 23% of children or adolescents are willing to effectively manage their weight while 49% of their parents are willing to support their child’s weight management.
What Doctors Say About Childhood Obesity
“Kids that do not grow up in a household where exercise and healthy eating is a priority are bound to be much less willing to treat their obesity.”
“In my practice it is rare that an obese child does not have obese or overweight parent(s).”
