Promoting healthy lifestyle behaviours in youth: Findings from a novel intervention for children at risk of cardiovascular disease. Paediatrics & Child Health, 26(8), 478-485.
Obesity is the most prevalent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in children. We developed a 2-year lifestyle intervention for youth at risk of CVD. We assessed changes in body mass index z-scores (zBMI) and key cardiometabolic risk factors, physical fitness, and capacity among those who completed the program.
