This report explores the potential for the development of an ‘Obesity Risk Tool’ to predict risk of childhood obesity using reguarly collected perinatal data. The development process included a review of the literature to identify early life risk factors for childhood obesity; detailed statistical analyses of two contemporary UK birth cohorts to determine if it was feasible to develop the ORT based on perinatal risk factors identified in the review; qualitative assessments of parental and professional views of ORT; and a multidisciplinary forum of experts to explore various aspects of ORT.
