Pasitos Adelante: Childhood Obesity Prevention

Folic Acid Awareness 6

This interdisciplinary program works to prevent childhood obesity by working with families who have a child under five years old, who is at risk for obesity and has been referred by their health care provider. Families receive in-home support from a Community Health Worker (CHW) who is a trained nutrition specialist to work towards the goals they have set for themselves, using the Pediatric Childhood Obesity Toolkit and the 5-2-1-0 messaging it is based upon. Families work towards improving healthy nutrition habits and increasing physical activity.
