Description

• Childhood obesity continues to be ever expanding.

• This is leading to increasing health care needs and costs.

• Despite numerous interventions, the rates continue to climb.

• The purpose of this study is to identify family-based childhood obesity interventions that are proven to decrease the rates of childhood obesity.

• A literature review explores multiple different family-based childhood obesity interventions.

• The effective interventions are examined closely to discover commonalities between the interventions.

• Family-based interventions that decrease childhood obesity share similar attributes.

• The proven interventions may indicate the need to focus coordination of care with the patients and their families.
