The secondary aims of this study are to examine post-intervention changes in eating patterns, body image disturbances, unhealthy weight control practices, and fitness levels.
The investigators hypothesize that at the post-BOUNCE summer intervention, children will exhibit significant decreases in adiposity indicators (percent body fat and waist circumference), sweetened drinks and fried foods consumption, and an increase in physical fitness (aerobic capacity and minutes of moderated-vigorous physical activity) when compared to their baseline values after controlling for demographic, acculturation characteristics.

Child participants will attend the healthy lifestyle summer program for 4 weeks, five days per week. The summer intervention will include daily one-hour nutrition education, one-hour behavioral counseling, and 3 one-hour exercise sessions. These physical activities include flexibility, games, traditional fitness, and dancing. Counseling and school psychology students, registered dietitian/nutrition educators, and fitness specialists will lead the respective sessions. Parental guardians will participate in a two-hour weekly parental sessions that involve: 1)nutrition education with cooking demonstrations of healthy recipes; 2)behavioral counseling to learn effective parenting strategies on how to support their child's healthy nutrition and exercise habits and goals; and 3)exercise sessions where parents will engage in different physical activities and will receive fitness tips on how to promote an active lifestyle for the entire family.
