Description The chapter of monograph deals with the issue of creation and the actual implementation of intervention programmes for the prevention and treatment of metabolic syndrome. Overweight and obesity are now considered to be serious health problems associated with a number of consequences such as impaired glucose tolerance, cardiovascular disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and low quality of life associated with low self-esteem. On the other hand, effective tools are still limited which would reduce prevalence of overweight and obesity in group of children. The low level of daily physical activity and dominating of sedentary lifestyle are related with specific causes of obesity with long-term positive energy balance. Many intervention programmes are focusing only on one component (increasing of physical activity in daily routine). The findings support to the claim that this concept must be add by the nutritional advice and consultations with mental health problems. Schools can provide long-term appropriate environment for the implementation of intervention programmes focusing on health promotion for all children. It has already been described that number of recommendations and effective programmes focusing on prevention of obesity in the literature but the prevalence is still high. The aim of the chapter is to provide readers orientation for creation and implementation of programmes into practice in children with metabolic syndrome.
