W2005: Parenting, energy dynamics, and lifestyle determinants of childhood obesity: New directions in prevention

Duration: October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2017

This project seeks to identify childhood obesity prevention strategies as influenced by parenting and provide resources for community and health professionals to use this information in practice.


  1. Compare and contrast outcomes from 2006 W1005 objective 1 (field practice perspective) and objective 3 (parent-child interaction) with findings from seminal obesity-prevention research to identify successful child obesity prevention strategies as influenced by parenting.

  2. Using the results of objective 1 (above) develop resources such as translational research articles that community and public health professionals could use in implementing community programs that ultimately could change the trajectory of childhood obesity and overweight.
