McGarvey E, et al. (2006). Using focus group results to inform preschool childhood obesity prevention programming. Ethn Health. Aug 2006;11(3):265-285.

The purpose of this study was to help determine material for developing a childhood obesity prevention program for multi-ethnic parents. Researchers concluded that intervention components should focus on parent self-efficacy and incorporate themes specific for ethnic groups. The authors also suggested that there was a need for culturally sensitive health and nutrition information.
