Parents control the child’s environment. To reduce risk of pediatric overweight, behaviorally focused risk assessment and parental education is needed. This session will describe newly developed pediatric obesity risk assessment tools validated with low-income, low-literate parents of preschool age children. The risk assessment tools assess behaviors within parental control i.e., screen time, parental modeling, availability of fruit and vegetables, meal time practices, and sleep. The risk assessment tools can be used to customize nutrition education through guided goal setting. The risk assessment tools can be tailored to different cultural/ethnic target audiences via a web-based image library.
1) Identify parental controlled behaviors related to obesity of 3-5 year old children
2) Describe how guided goal setting can be tailored for use in pediatric obesity prevention education intervention
3) List two ways to tailor the pediatric obesity risk assessment tools to your target audience
