Excess body weight is now the most common childhood and adolescence disorder in Europe. Overweight children are more likely to become overweight adults. Complications of excess weight in childhood and adolescence can be related to many important health problems, psychological wellbeing, poor social relations and educational disadvantages. New approaches are needed to address the challenge of preventing and treating obesity. Studies on weight-related problems have showed that cognitive behavioral therapy produce reductions on weight status through the modification of eating style and physical activity patterns of overweight and obese children. Mobile computing may provide an innovative and effective extension of psychotherapeutic treatment for eating disorders. Mobile devices applications have been used in recent years in studies applying ecological momentary assessment methodology. Their portability and immediacy have been advantageous. A cognitive behavioral therapy treatment of childhood obesity is described below which includes mobile devices for therapy support.
