|Abstract||OBJETIVOS: determinar a prevalência de sobrepeso e obesidade entre pré-escolares de duas escolas particulares em Recife. MÉTODOS: realizou-se um estudo de corte transversal com 230 pré-escolares matriculados em duas escolas particulares de Recife, no ano de 2000. Foram classificadas como portadoras de sobrepeso as crianças com índice peso/estatura entre +1 a +2 escores z e, como obesas, aquelas com peso/estatura acima de +2 escores z. RESULTADOS: as prevalências de sobrepeso e obesidade foram de 22,6% e 11,3%, respectivamente. Entre as crianças do sexo feminino, a prevalência de sobrepeso foi de 27,0% e a de obesidade foi de 9,8%. No sexo masculino, a prevalência de sobrepeso foi de 17,6% e a de obesidade foi de 13,0%. CONCLUSÕES: as prevalências de sobrepeso e obesidade foram elevadas nesse grupo de pré-escolares, provenientes em sua maioria de famílias de classe socioeconômica média e alta. O pediatra deve estar atento para a crescente prevalência da obesidade infantil, a fim de atuar na prevenção, diagnóstico e tratamento dessa condição.OBJECTIVES: to determine overweight and obesity prevalence of preschool children in two private schools in Recife. METHODS: cross-sectional study of 230 preschool children enrolled in two private schools in Recife, in 2000. Overweight was defined as weight-for-height between +1 and +2 z scores, and obesity as weight-for-height above +2 z scores. RESULTS: prevalence rates were 22,6% for overweight and 11,3% for obesity. Among female children, overweight prevalence was 27,0% and obesity prevalence was 9,8%. Among males, overweight prevalence was 17,6% and obesity prevalence was 13,0%. CONCLUSIONS: overweight and obesity prevalence were high among preschool children from high income families. Pediatricians must be aware of the increasing prevalence of childhood obesity to be able to prevent, diagnose and treat this condition.|
