Abstract: The Children's Treatment Centre of Křetín not only treats obesity, but also respiratory diseases and locomotors system impairments. This study focuses on 25 children who were sent to the Centre by a paediatrician in order to reduce their body weight. These children were prescribed a slimming program which included physical activity and an appropriate diet. The curative stay lasted 4 weeks. After the treatment was over, it may be concluded that all children had reduced their weight. The weight reduction in boys was 4.91 kg and in girls 3.56 kg on average.
