Transforming Obesity Prevention for CHILDren

The TOPCHILD Collaboration is bringing together researchers from around the world to transform the thinking and practices around early childhood obesity prevention. It is a world-first to combine individual participant data meta-analysis, deconstruction of interventions, and use of predictive modeling to identify key effective components of very early obesity prevention interventions (starting before 12 months of age). By unpacking past interventions, the collaboration seeks to understand how they work and for whom. Results from this project will enable researchers to use effective components to design new interventions that are efficient, implementable, scalable, and directly inform policy and practice.
