Pediatric obesity treatment improves children's self-esteem and body image

Treating obesity in children and adolescents improves self-esteem and body image, according to an analysis of all relevant studies published to date. The analysis, which is published in Pediatric Obesity , included 64 studies. Losing weight appeared important for achieving improvements in body image but not self-esteem. Our findings are encouraging as they show that pediatric obesity treatment can improve psychological as well as weight-related outcomes."
