This manuscript is a review article regarding care for overweight/obese children and their families through synthesizing treatment in the clinical, administrative/policy, and financial domains as organized by C.J. Peek's Three-world view. Additionally, the article traces the trajectory of pediatric obesity care from initial musings, to familycentered care, multidisciplinary care, and the most recent recommendations (as stated by the Expert Committee) for treatment. The purpose of this review is to bring together and inform multiple disciplines about (1) terms, recent expert recommendations, and the implementation guide pertaining to pediatric obesity treatment, (2) a structure for synthesizing clinical, operational, and financial practices, and (3) recommendations that bridge medical and other healthcare options for pediatric overweight patients and their families.
