In this chapter, an overview of the prevalence and health problems of childhood obesity in Singapore provides a backdrop to the discussion on the measures of prevention and intervention of childhood obesity in Singapore and the success and failures of these measures. While there is a lack of major publications on the prevention and management of childhood obesity in Singapore, the various reports and limited publications give us a glimpse into the strategies used, the effectiveness, flaws, and the ongoing programs to combat childhood obesity. In addition, the chapter provides new research data and clinical experience in the areas of childhood obesity and related issues such as eating disorders.
