ECOG is a pan-European group of professionals dealing with childhood obesity and overweight. ECOG brings together experts from across the board including: paediatricians, psychologists, nutritionists, geneticists, physical activity experts, economists and many more. The group was founded in 1991 and its mission is to help the European community at large to understand fully the health, social, psychological and economic impacts of childhood obesity, and work together to take this growing problem "off the menu" in Europe.
