Pasitos Adelante: Childhood Obesity Prevention

Folic Acid Awareness 6

This interdisciplinary childhood obesity prevention program works with families with a child under five years old at risk for obesity who are referred by their health care provider. Families receive in-home support from a Community Health Worker (CHW) who is 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.
