The article analyzes the literature data on using methods of physical culture for correction of body weight abnormality in children and teenagers. The great importance of that problem was shown in many studies; however, the number of related publications is small. There are some systematic errors in the majority of research, and that limits the application of its' results. Both general physical education and sports can be considered as methods of obesity management in a younger generation. The preventive efficiency of these interventions remains almost not studied.
