The objective of this technical report is to provide clinicians with evidence-based, actionable information upon which to make assessment and treatment decisions for children and adolescents with obesity. In addition, this report will provide an evidence base to inform clinical practice guidelines for the management and treatment of overweight and obesity in children and adolescents. To this end, the goal of this report was to identify all relevant studies to answer 2 overarching key questions: (KQ1) “What are clinically based, effective treatments for obesity?” and (KQ2) “What is the risk of comorbidities among children with obesity?” See Appendix 1 for the conceptual framework and a priori key questions.
