This paper describes available diet and physical activity measures from NCCOR's landmark tool, the Measures Registry.

This User Guide is designed to assist users in selecting the most appropriate method of measuring adiposity in children when conducting population-level research and/or evaluation on obesity.

Whether you are a teacher, parent, researcher, or practitioner, we all have a role to play in keeping kids healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out these resources!

The Youth Compendium of Physical Activities provides a list of 196 common activities in which youth participate and the estimated energy cost associated with each activity. The Spanish version includes activities common in Spain, Mexico, and Colombia.

Dive into the emerging areas of diet and physical activity, along with topics of new relevance to childhood obesity - sedentary behavior and sleep.

This year, NCCOR took steps to build a strong foundation for the future of childhood obesity research—and for the future of children across the United States.
