Hello all:

I am a pediatric nurse and now a Family Nurse Practitioner Student in Northern California.

I'm looking at BMI screening practices in children and would like to take an informal survey of community practice.

Can you tell me how childhood obesity is screened for in your practice?

1. At what age do you begin to screen children for obesity?

2. What tools do you use (online calculator, CDC percentile chart?, ht/wt/BMI, etc...)

3. At what age do you add overweight / obese to the problem list?

4. Where do you practice?

Thanks so much for your help!
