Household, Parent, and Child Contributions to Childhood Obesity.
Gable, Sara; Lutz, Susan
Family Relations, v49 n3 p293-300 Jul 2000
Sixty-five parent-child pairs were studied to portray the potential family processes that put children at risk for obesity and to illustrate the household environment, parenting beliefs, and child characteristics of obese and non-obese children. Results suggest that efforts to curb childhood obesity should address improving parent knowledge of child nutrition and reducing child television viewing. (Author/MKA)
