Abstract

In the overweight/obese child and adolescent population, dietary intervention should not be an isolated intervention but must be carried out in the context of a change in lifestyle1. In 2016 the Official College of Pharmacists in Cádiz developed and launched a health campaign under the motto "Weight and children’s health". The general objective of this campaign was to promote food eating habits and healthy lifestyles for children.

During the Campaign, 3,809 children in the province, aged 5 to 14 years, who were offered nutritional information, were measured and weighed in Cádiz pharmacies.

Upon analyzing the results, a prevalence of excess weight (overweight plus obesity) of 29.67% and obesity of 13.73% was observed, with the boys showing higher rates than girls, both in excess weight (33.11 vs 25.95%) and obesity (16.73 vs 10.49%).

Blood pressure measurement was recommended for the population with ≥ 97 percentile (obesity). Of the 523 individuals within this percentile, blood pressure was measured at 249, 135 of whom showed blood pressure values higher than those of reference.

In view of the results, this study raises the need to deepen the surveillance and prevention of cardiovascular risk in children.

The pharmacy is an ideal place to promote healthy lifestyles and prevention of overweight and obesity.
