Abstract

The rates of overweight and obesity in childhood have increased across countries and are associated with dangerous health implications. Italy, globally, ranks 61st (females) and 46th (males) for the percentage of obese children and adolescents. According to data from Okkio alla Salute (2019), in Italy there are 20.4% overweight children aged 8–9 and 9.4% obese. Sedentary habits influence the motor development and related psychological factors of children, limiting the preventive and protective effects of motor activities. Low levels of motor abilities and motor skills are associated with low physical activity levels. Multicomponent institutional interventions are required, to promote health, fight overweight and obesity, through experimental teaching models that involve the community and public health
