Objective: To comment on how COVID-19 quarantine has affected physical activity in youth and induced a pediatric depreobesity status.

Key Points

  • Scarce literature has described the impact of COVID-19 on youth levels of moderate to vigorous physical activity.
  • Physical inactivity and social distancing could lead to physical and psychosocial problems increasing the risk of obesity and depression.
  • Regular moderate to vigorous physical activity plays an essential role to limit or prevent the negative consequences of prolonged quarantine periods on pediatric depreobesity.
