When applied to an individual child, the calculation of BMI allows for classification and prompts further evaluation of individual risk factors for obesity and obesity-related comorbidities. If a child is younger than 2 years, then length-forheight measurements are plotted (Figs. 4). Patterns of weight and BMI change can also be very informative. Children or adolescents who are crossing percentiles are at risk for continued weight gain (1), and a thorough evaluation of activity, inactivity, and nutritional habits would be indicated.
Excessive food intake can induce downregulation, sensitization, and withdrawal and result in choosing the immediate reward of eating even in the face of negative long-term consequences (25). The prefrontal cortex is involved in the system necessary for decision making and choosing among options for action. In particular, its critical function in this process is to activate feelings or emotional states, which help focus decision making, from "thoughts" about rewarding or punishing events that are not currently present in one’s immediate environment (29,30).
