  • Parent and pediatrician participation and satisfaction [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Parents of at risk preschool children and pediatricians will show high participation rates in and report high levels of satisfaction with the interventions.
  • Healthy Eating [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Healthy Eating/Physical Activity Home-based Intervention participants will show lower levels of sweetened beverage and higher levels of lower fat/calorie snack and meal consumption compared to Safety/Injury Prevention Home-based Contact Control Intervention participants. The Nutrition Data System for Research will be used to measure this change.
  • Levels of TV watching [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Healthy Eating/Physical Activity Home-based Intervention participants will show lower levels of TV watching compared to Safety/Injury Prevention Home-based Contact Control Intervention participants;
  • Physical activity levels [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Healthy Eating/Physical Activity Home-based Intervention participants will show higher levels of physical activity compared to Safety/Injury Prevention Home-based Contact Control Intervention participants. Physical activity level will be measured by accelerometry.

  • Hypothesized mediators of BMI change [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Parents in the Healthy Eating/Physical Activity Home-based Intervention will report more favorable levels of hypothesized mediators of BMI change (e.g., family meal frequency, availability of lower fat/calorie foods and physical activity opportunities) compared to Safety/Injury Prevention Home-based Contact Control Intervention participants.
  • Body mass index (BMI) percentile [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participation in the Healthy Eating/Physical Activity Home-based Intervention will lead to reduced BMI percentile compared to Safety/Injury Prevention Home-based Contact Control Intervention participant.

Linking Home Environments and Primary Care: Obesity Prevention for 2-5 Year Olds

The goals of this study are to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and potential efficacy of an innovative obesity prevention intervention integrating pediatrician counseling and a home-based program to prevent unhealthy weight gain among 2-4 year old children at risk for obesity.

The pediatric primary care setting is a relatively untapped resource for addressing obesity prevention. The goals of this developmental study are to develop and evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a primary care-based, preschool obesity prevention intervention integrating pediatrician counseling and a home-based program for parents of 2-4 year old children at risk for obesity. We propose to recruit 60 parent-child dyads from families of 2-4 year old at risk children (e.g., BMI between the 85th and 95th percentile for age and gender or a BMI between the 50th and 85th percentile and at least one overweight parent) and randomize each dyad to one of the following groups: (a) Healthy Eating/Physical Activity Intervention including brief pediatrician counseling regarding the child's current BMI%ile status, recommendations for home environmental changes to achieve a healthy weight gain trajectory, and home safety and injury risk reduction recommendations paired with a 6 month home-based program delivered via phone by a health behavior specialist to promote implementation of the obesity prevention home environmental strategies, or (b) General Health/Safety/Injury Prevention Contact Control Intervention: Families will receive the same brief counseling from their pediatrician paired with a 6 month home-based program delivered via phone by a health behavior specialist to promote implementation of the general health, safety and injury prevention home environmental strategies.

  • Healthy Eating/Physical Activity Home-based Intervention: The "Busy Bodies/Better Bites" intervention arm will include brief pediatrician counseling regarding the child's current BMI percentile status, recommendations for home environmental changes to achieve a healthy weight gain trajectory, and home safety and injury risk reduction environmental recommendations paired with a 6 month home-based program delivered via phone by a masters-level health behavior specialist to promote implementation of the obesity prevention home environmental strategies.
  • Safety/Injury Prevention Home-based Contact Control Intervention: The "Healthy Tots/Safe Spots" intervention arm will include the same brief counseling from the pediatrician paired with a 6 month home-based program delivered via phone by a masters-level health behavior specialist to promote implementation of the safety and injury prevention home environmental strategies.
