EPOCH collaboration authored one of the top cited papers in Pediatric Obesity

We are thrilled that an EPOCH Collaboration publication investigating the effectiveness of obesity prevention interventions in early infancy is one of the most cited papers in Pediatric Obesity in 2021.

This study combined individual data from four world-leading randomized control trials on early childhood obesity prevention in Australia and New Zealand.  It showed that parents-focused interventions from infancy to age 2 were effective in promoting healthier weight and weight-related behaviours including breastfeeding duration, television viewing time, and feeding practices.

This is significant as the prevalence of overweight and obesity in children under 5 is increasing globally with debilitating long term health and economic impacts.
