The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) recently shared the results of its Family Medicine Residency Childhood Obesity Initiative. More than 400 residents in eight programs participated in the initiative, which was funded by a grant from the MetLife Foundation, through projects promoting fitness to at-risk patients and their families.

Although the projects did not measure decreases in childhood obesity, participating children and their families reported increases in healthy eating habits and physical activity.
