The prevalence of childhood obesity is increasing due also to social restrictions brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has impacted families’ lifestyles and psychological health as well as hindering their adherence to traditional treatments. The present study reports two Narrative Medicine experiences that could make a difference in its childhood obesity prevention and treatment. The first illustrates the effectiveness of a non-blame therapeutic relationship with families and children, listening to the thoughts and emotions of past care experiences and weight stigma in place of nutritional history and advice. Another study examines the beliefs of 635 pediatricians who responded to a survey about obstacles to obesity treatment. Aside from the first thought that focused mainly on the family as an obstacle and the request for health education, time, and specialists, pediatricians have then moved on to ask for training to improve their therapeutic relationships. As part of the health planning process as well as the interview with the family, storytelling offers new opportunities for success in the treatment of obesity. © 2022, Associazione Culturale Pediatri.
