Long-term improvement for the majority of participating children with overweight or obesity

COACH approach works

The approach used by the Centre for Overweight Adolescent and Children’s Healthcare (COACH) at Maastricht UMC+ to help children with overweight and obesity make changes in their lifestyle and thus improve their health appears to work. The risk factors for chronic diseases are drastically reduced and the vast majority of the children are able to improve their weight in the long term.
