Primary Hypothesis Children whose mothers receive the FBC sessions will have significantly lower BMI one year after the intervention compared to control group children whose families receive an active placebo control.
Secondary Hypotheses In families that receive the FBC, household availability of fruits and vegetables will increase, and availability of high fat foods will decrease, as measured by multiple household food inventories, compared to control group families exposed to an active placebo intervention.
Household level of food security, mothers' food purchase motives and family food interaction will influence the effects of the FBC on household food supplies.
