Obese children ages 5 to 9 were able to shed pounds and maintain weight loss over the next two years after their parents enrolled in a "healthy lifestyle" course for six months, an Australian study in Pediatrics showed. Parents reported the sessions helped them place restrictions on their children's meals and habits as well as turn down their children's demands, leading to an average body mass index drop of 10% for the children.
