You can find articles on this subject in the COM academic databases.  Follow the link below to the Databases libguide and select the Hot Topics & News tab.  There will be a list of databases you can enter and search for articles.

Facts on File: Issues & Controversies and Gale: Opposing Viewpoints have overviews and basic information about the topic, which you can find through basic keyword searches such as childhood obesity or obesity in children.

In the several Ebsco databases available, you can start with a search for childhood obesity and then limit the search with the options on the left side of the screen (full-text, subject headings, etc.), or by entering additional search criteria (ex. childhood obesity AND prevention).  You also can do a search exclusively for articles that have had childhood obesity assigned as a subject by searching for DE "obesity in children".
