The Shenzhen Birth Cohort Study was set up to investigate the effect of early life environmental exposures on short- and long-term health consequences in Shenzhen, China.
The objective of the present study was to examine the effectiveness of a computerised decision-support tool, developed to assist paediatric clinicians in delivering personalised nutrition and lifestyle optimization advice to children and their families, as a means of childhood obesity management.
This proposal uses an innovative methodological framework, the multiphase optimization strategy (MOST), to design an effective and efficient responsive feeding (RF) intervention that promotes child appetite self-regulation among a high-risk sample: families with preschoolers living in rural poverty. The principles of MOST emphasize efficiency, allowing identification of the most efficacious intervention components (i.e., components that contribute to treatment effects) while minimizing participant burden and cost. ONE PATH will intervene on ~800 families across 48 classrooms serving largely low-income, rural populations. ONE PATH will capitalize on the existing infrastructure with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education to engage trusted Extension educators making this model cost-effective, and increasing the potential for wide-scale dissemination and sustainability.
The purpose of this study is to see if educational videos about how to help children develop healthy behaviors, paired with treatment in a pediatric obesity clinic, can increase caregiver confidence and improve child behaviors and weight. Caregivers of children between the ages of 4 and 11 years old who are new patients to a pediatric obesity clinic will be invited to take part in the study. All families will receive the standard treatment provided in the pediatric obesity clinic. Half of the caregivers will be assigned to also watch a few educational videos every month for 3 months in between clinic visits.
Mariposa Community Health Center, a health center in Nogales, Arizona on the US-Mexico border, will provide a program to prevent obesity in children and create a community environment that supports a healthy lifestyle. Mariposa designed and implemented the La Vida Buena ("The Good Life") program and already know that helps families eat more healthily and exercise. Mariposa Community Health Center will test this program on younger children aged 5-8 years old. Providers will refer children who are overweight or obese to the La Vida Buena Program. In order to determine if the La Vida Buena program works, Mariposa Community Health center will implement the 8-week program with 100 overweight or obese children in their Nogales clinic. They will measure their weight (BMI), exercise levels and food habits at the beginning of the program and then 3- months and 6-months after the program ends. Mariposa will compare these results to children in the nearby Rio Rico clinic who do not receive the La Vida Buena program. These 100 overweight or obese children in Rio Rico will instead receive one educational session, and the same information will be collected regarding BMI, exercise level and food habits. After the 6-month period, the children from Rio Rico will be able to receive the full La Vida Buena program.
This study assesses the associations between genetic factors, food-cue-related neural reactivity, self-regulatory capacity, eating in the absence of hunger (EAH), and adiposity gain in children.
Recruitment of obese children, classification according to sleep questionnaire and randomization in two groups to perform nutritional and sleep intervention. . One group receives dietary intervention through recommendations. A group receives dietary and sleep intervention through recommendations. An analysis of the melatonin profile and metabolic and inflammatory status is performed by biochemistry at the beginning and end of the intervention. Determine if the intervention has improved the health of obese children.
Prevalence rates of childhood obesity have reached alarming levels. As childhood obesity may already be associated with serious comorbidities, obese adolescents are at significantly higher risk for obesity and increased morbidity and mortality during adulthood. Combined lifestyle interventions, which include regular physical activity and dietary restriction, have been shown to result in most significant improvements in cardiovascular function and their associated factors in the pediatric and adolescent population with obesity. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of a combined exercise and diet intervention on cardiovascular function and their associated factors in obese children.
The treatment of childhood obesity is challenging. Although dietary and physical activity recommendations are widely known, the willingness to change lifestyles within the family is not easy to be achieved. Motivational interviewing has been shown as a possibly effective method to increase adherence to dietary recommendations in the obese adult. There is scarce evidence showing whether implementing a motivational interview in obese children could be effective. The aim of this clinical trial is assessing the effect of a motivational interview, coordinated between the clinical and primary care services on 8 to 14 years old obese children.
This study evaluates if promotion of a normocaloric and balanced diet and of physical activity, through an individual- or group-based lifestyle intervention of 12 months, may affect anthropometric measurements and metabolic profile in obese children.
