Abstract: The aim of this paper was to know the main academic contributions on the perception that parents have on their children’s obesity. An integrative review of the literature was conducted based on the search for articles in the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), PubMed (National Library of Medicine, USA), Google Scholar and Capes (Higher Education Personnel Improvement Coordination) databases. The following descriptors were used: "social perception" and "childhood obesity"; as well as "childhood obesity" and "parents". We used the Bardin Analysis and three thematic axes were built: 1) Distorted perception of actual body weight by parents; 2) The need of the educational intervention to consider the perception of parents; 3) Self-deprecating feelings in parents and children, as facilitators to higher prevalence of obesity. It was noticed that there is a significant number of studies showing that the perception of parents of overweigh t children is usually distorted and tends to underestimate the child's weight. Many prevention and treatment programs are ineffective and one of the hypotheses for the fact is distorted parental perception. Thus, one should consider the perception of parents and their children when planning interventions for obese children.
