About

This pilot study evaluates the feasibility and impact of a father-focused childhood obesity prevention program on paternal food-related parenting practices, mealtime behaviors and father/child nutrition and physical activity behaviors. Half of participants (low-income father and child dyads) will receive an intervention immediately while the other half of participants will serve as a wait-list control group and receive the intervention at a later date.

Full description

All participants (low-income father and child dyads) will receive an 8 session (2 hours/session) (DAD) including community-based, hands-on, nutrition and parent education intervention with between-session technology enhancements. Dyads will be randomly assigned within groups of 10 to DAD or a wait-list control group (DELAY). Assessments will be conducted at pre, post and 1 month post including a subset of data from cohabiting mothers to assess moderating influences on outcomes.
