There are so many places where you can find information on childhood obesity besdies opposing viewpoints and points of view, although those are great places to start.  First, the database Academic Search Complete will provide you with thousands of results, so you may even want to focus your research on a specific aspect of childhood obesity to find the best articles.  You can also try searching on Medline and CINAHL, two nursing/health databases, that will specifically provide you with medical and nursing journals on the topic, if you're interested in that.  Again though, searching "childhood obesity" in either of these databases will lead you to thousands of results.  Depending on what you're most interested in, I'd recommend clicking on the Advanced Search option in Academic Search Complete or CINAHL, and searching "childhood obesity" in one search field and then another keyword in a second search field, such as "effects," "causes," "bullying," etc.
