Abstract:

Abstract: Childhood obesity has more than doubled over the last 30 years among children ages 6 to 11. Prevalence is higher among Hispanic American adolescent boys (26.8%), compared to non-Hispanic, White adolescent boys (16.7%). Obesity is known to cause many health problems including diabetes and heart disease. Nineteen obese, Hispanic boys, ages 10 and 11, were selected from the general school population of a southern California elementary school. After the approval of the California State University Long Beach Institutional Review Board (IRB), each participant's Body Mass Index (BMI) was matched against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) BMI percentile growth chart. Each boy was pre- and post-tested after he received nutrition education intervention for 12 weeks. This project aimed to provide methods to guide obesity prevention programs for ethnic minority, school-age children. The results showed a significant decrease in post nutrition education intervention BMI (p = 0.00).
