Obesity prevention in preschool Native-American children: a pilot study using home visiting

Harvey-Berino H, Rourke J. Obesity prevention in preschool Native-American children:  a pilot study using home visiting. Obes Res. 2003;11:606-611.

The authors tested the effectiveness of a home visiting obesity prevention intervention in a population of Native-American preschool children. Height-for-weight measures and dietary intake showed that a home visiting program that teaches parents about parenting skills might be a promising obesity prevention intervention.
