Combating the Epidemic of Childhood Obesity

Though adult obesity has somewhat plateaued in the U.S., it remains a climbing epidemic for children. Robert Davidson, PhD, program director of the Nutrition and Human Performance degree at Logan, is passionate about tackling the issue with body composition technology and education for children. He and August 2012 Logan graduate Wesley Corbin, DC, MS, have worked together to further those efforts.

Current technology allows for identifying fat accumulation patterns on adult bodies, but the case is not the same for children. “In adults, as you gain or lose weight, fat tends to be proportional to where it already is on the body, so it’s easier to predict what you will look like after a change in body fat,” says Dr. Davidson. “For children, it’s more difficult, as they are still growing.”

Dr. Davidson has started looking for more specific patterns to help predict personalized outcomes for children. He has been able to find concrete patterns in fat accumulation among prepubescent and pubescent children, identifying differences among boys and girls. This, says Dr. Davidson, is a major step toward the ability to predict specific changes in body fat and where those changes will take place on children’s bodies.

“The next step is to take the trends we’ve identified and create a mathematical model allowing us to predict body fat changes and body measurements,” he says. “Then we can predict what a child’s body will look like if lifestyle changes are made and actually show kids how to be healthier.” He says that through this technology, he hopes to develop educational tools for elementary classrooms.
