Therefore, the study concluded that public health organisations should move to addressthis defect.
CHILDHOOD OBESITY26Source Thirteen. Kelishadi & Azizi-Soleiman (2014) through a systematic reviewpresented a summary of experiences with various school, family, and clinic-basedinterventions. The study used multiple research sources based on high-quality clinicaltrials. Their findings indicated that school-based programs had a substantial long-termimpact on the large target group. This finding was attributed to the fact that childrenspend a significant part of their time in school, thereby adopting some lifestyle fromschool. Therefore, the school was found to have remarkable implications on healthbehavior, however, based on some considerable limitations, it was difficult to identifytheir impact on anthropometric measures. Clinic-based intervention including dietaryand other lifestyle changes such as increasing behavior therapy or physical activity wasalso found to have a favorable impact. The study recommended the use of amultidisciplinary approach in schools that involves the parents as the most suitableapproach in controlling childhood obesity.Source Fourteen. Notara, Giannakopoulou, Sakellari, and Panagiotakos (2020) used asystematic literature review to analyse the existing literature on family structure alongwith family factors that are related to the weight status of a child to introduce thecomplex associations between childhood obesity and these factors. The findingsidentified ten factors across multiple pieces of literature as part of the family factors thatcan be linked to childhood obesity. The identified factors include a family history ofillness, parental weight, family perceptions on the weight of a child, parental educationalstatus, feeding practices, parental occupational status, parenting styles, family structure,and family meal frequency.
CHILDHOOD OBESITY27Source Fifteen. Skinner & Foster (2013) conducted a systematic review of existingstudies that assessed the consequences and/or causes of obesity from a systemscience view. The study using more than 21 sources, addressed 4 general areas ofsystem science in obesity. these areas included the impact of social networks onobesity, the translation of interventions to a large scale, the impact of location onobesity, and the impact of obesity on other economic or health outcomes. The studyconcludes that system science views and associated approaches are profoundlypromising in generating substantial knowledge regarding the relations between adultoutcomes and childhood obesity.CHAPTER FOUR4Discussion, Synthesis, and AnalysisThis section will synthesise, discuss, and analyse the literature review findings. To putthings into perspective, the researcher identified some special relationships between thesources identified in the literature review and presented the findings based on keythemes as they emanated from the selected sources.
