The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the AAP Section on Obesity approach obesity by suggesting policies to prevent and treat obesity. Additionally, they provide support to pediatric obesity specialists, pediatricians who serve as practice and community leaders in the fight against pediatric obesity, and general pediatricians who encounter patients with overweight, obesity, and severe obesity.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all children ages 6 months to 8 years receive two doses of influenza vaccine their first season, given four weeks apart.
