The objective of this study is to implement and test the efficacy of the "Summer Harvest Adventure," a comprehensive garden-based behavioral, social, and environmental intervention for children (ages 8-11 years) residing in low-resource communities.
In this study it is researched how preventive and curative healthcare for children with overweight and obesity was conducted during the Covid-19 pandemic, which barriers were noticed by professionals, and how new methods (such as e-health and telemonitorning) for coaching, communication and healthcare were used and experienced.
There is a critical need to develop an affordable, valid, and reliable techniques to assess free-living energy expenditure (EE), energy storage (ES), and energy intake (EI). The purpose of this project is to develop and evaluate statistical procedures to model, quantify and adjust for the measurement error of and consumer (e.g., Garmin) activity monitors and body composition scales to estimate EE and ES, and use the 'calibrated' values to estimate free-living EI.
A retrospective study to investigate the method called The Halland Obesity Municipal Effort for children. All children participating in the intervention since the start of this specific method will be eligible for inclusion. The aims are to describe participants and the method-specific activities they are participating in, as well as the effect on their health and school grades.
In this study, doctors want to find out more about why people who lose weight often regain the weight that they have lost once they resume a regular diet and whether hormones might play a role in weight regain. The study is divided into two parts, called the meal replacement period and the follow-up period. The meal replacement period will consist of drinking a shake for breakfast and lunch and eating a frozen meal for dinner that is calorie controlled. Individuals will also be asked to eat two servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables each day. The study will provide the shakes and the frozen entrees, participants are asked to supply the fruits and vegetables. Participation in this study will last for up to 35 weeks. There will be 10 in-person visits and 13 visits by phone or over Zoom over the 35 weeks.
This study will test whether managing the hours during which people eat, called time restricted eating, might help them to lose weight. For this study, one parent and a child will enroll as a group (called a dyad). The dyads will be assigned at random to practice time restricted eating (within 10-12 hours per day) but will be able to eat whatever they would like or to limit portion size and increase fruit, vegetable and lean protein intake and limit sugar sweetened beverages and undergo . Both groups will receive dietary counseling, Bluetooth toothbrushes and scales to help monitor their progress. The study will last for 12 weeks and will have one survey four weeks after the last in person visit. There will be 2 in person visits, 7 virtual visits, 2 phone visits and daily time logs.
Gardner GOALS is a 6 month program for treatment of childhood obesity that consists of twice monthly telehealth meetings with a health educator. Potential participants enter the study using a randomly ordered list of eligible patients based on BMI, age and number of clinic visits in 2020.
Eating Better Together is a 6-month pilot program that teaches families about healthy eating and activity and provides vouchers to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables from a local retail partner.
The purpose of this pilot study is to examine changes in childhood obesity associated with the implementation of a Trauma Informed Care approach with weight counseling and management among low-income minority children in a primary care setting.
Childhood obesity is a strong predictor of adult obesity with health and economic consequences for the individual and society. Adiposity rebound (AR) is a rise in the Body Mass Index occurring between 3-7 years. Early adiposity rebound (EAR) occurs at a median age of 2 years and is a risk factor for later obesity. Events happening in "the first 1,000 days" play a role in obesity development. One of the key elements in this crucial time window is the gut microbiome, a highly dynamic organ that is sensitive to environmental exposure being linked to obesity development. Prenatal (dietary/lifestyle maternal factors and environmental exposure) and postnatal determinants (the type of feeding, sleep patterns, speed of growth) and environmental obesogenic pollutants may influence the infant microbial colonization, thus increasing the risk of EAR onset. LIMIT will holistically identify the longitudinal interplay between the intestinal microbiome and infant/maternal nutritional and lifestyle habits, environmental factors exposure and anthropometric measurements, in children with AR vs EAR, driving new mechanistic insights to create an EAR predictive model. The study will evaluate a group of 150 mother-infant pairs, during the first four years of life at different follow-up.
