Anita Vreugdenhil, pediatrician at the Maastricht University Medical Center+, says: “It is time for an OMT (Outbreak Management Team) for children.” Anita has been researching children’s lifestyles since the start of the pandemic. Over 66% of children who were already bordering on obese, became even more so during the pandemic with an average of five kilos. “Some even gained ten kilos.” That’s why she’s advocating for a more centralized approach with a children’s OMT.
