The primary aim is to determine the relative effectiveness in child BMI z-scores at 3, 6, and 12-months post baseline of iChoose+ versus Family Connections. Secondary aims are to determine (1) ongoing reach, fidelity, and implementation costs, (2) community capacity for implementation and sustainability, (3) relative impact on family eating/physical activity and parental weight, and (4) relative adherence and potential dose response relationships.
This study will evaluate the effects of a one week weight management summer camp on children's weight, quality of life, mood and feelings, self-esteem, weight management efficacy, enjoyment of physical activity, and body image.
The purpose of this research is to develop, apply, and evaluate a school-based intervention program in East Jerusalem schools, designed to increase knowledge and to improve the attitudes and healthy behavior of schoolchildren, their teachers and their mothers' with regard to healthy eating and physical activity habits. The study tested the hypothesis that the impact of the entire school intervention program on students' lifestyles is mediated by their teachers' engagement in health promotion and by their mothers' involvement in school activity.
Although there are numerous studies investigating the pharmacokinetic properties of intravenous acetaminophen in infants and children with normal weight, there are none in the obese pediatric patient . This study will investigate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of acetaminophen (total Cl and Vd) in obese children and adolescents
The goal of this study is to further increase the impact of a validated and widely-used Eating Smart • Being Active EFNEP curriculum by teaching parents responsive feeding practices resulting in the development of healthier patterns of child eating behavior and food intake. Additionally, the effectiveness of two delivery strategies for adding feeding video-based content will be examined (in-person versus online lessons).
Background Childhood obesity has been related to an impaired cardiovascular structure and function. Aims of this study will be to evaluate early cardiovascular abnormalities in a large population of obese children and adolescents compared with a normal weight counterpart, to investigate the potential association with insulin resistance (IR), serum uric acid (sUA), metabolic syndrome (MetS), plasmatic markers of inflammation and oxidative stress and adipokines, to evaluate changes in cardiovascular dysfunction after 6 and 12 months of a behavioral treatment (isocaloric Mediterranean balanced diet plus daily aerobic physical activity). Subjects and methods This was a single-center case-control study. Eighty obese (OB) subjects (6-16 years) and 20 normal weight (NW) matched controls were consecutively recruited. In the whole population we will perform an anthropometric and a cardiovascular assessment. OB patients will also undergo an OGTT and biochemical evaluations. In the OB group, all these evaluations will be performed at baseline and after 6 (T6) and 12 months (T12) of diet plus aerobic training.
The primary purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility and participant acceptability of an interactive, internet/mobile-enabled dietary self management intervention. The secondary purpose of this study is to determine if the intervention improves knowledge, attitudes and food preferences associated with the targeted behaviors, to reduce childhood obesity risk from baseline to post-test.
Alongside efforts in public health and policy to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic, medical providers seek to play effective roles in prevention and treatment. Limited interventional studies with effective long-term maintenance of weight loss in children are available. Moreover, interventions should focus on modifying lifestyle, by improving also ludic educational training. In fact, the knowledge, attitudes, behaviors and skills developed through effective health programs may result in a better quality of life and empower children to make correct choices to promote the health of the individual the family and the community. For this reason, in a cohort of obese pediatric subjects with visceral adiposity, the aim of the study is to assess the efficacy of an educational training inspired to Mediterranean diet and based on gamification (as "The Mediterranean Goose") with respect to a conventional treatment on weight loss and improvement of cardio-metabolic risk factors.
The goal of this study is to investigate whether eight weekly telephone coaching sessions or materials on lifestyle interventions can be beneficial for overweight and obese 8-12 year olds.
This study is a family-centered, community-based intervention to prevent and treat childhood obesity among 3-5 year old children from undeserved communities. Half of participants will receive a healthy lifestyle intervention and half of participants will receive a school-readiness intervention.
