[Symposium leadership presentation] This is a descriptive study utilizing the Healthy Eating and Activities Together (HEAT) guidelines to examine the benefits of healthy eating and activities of children between the ages 2 and 5 years who are seen in the primary care setting. Overweight among children is such a serious, multidimensional health problem that has been recognized across the nation. (CDC, 2005; Davidson, K.K. & Birch, L.L., 2001 & 2002; James, et al., 2001; NCHS, 2005). There are multiple contributing factors to this complex modern epidemic with the most important being lifestyle activities and the eating habits established by children during early childhood (Ogden, 2004; Bogen, 2004; Cavadini, 2000; Davison & Birch, 2002; Epstein et al., 2000; Fox et al., 2004; Robinson, 2001; & Ruxton, 2004). The prevalence of this epidemic has been so dramatic that it is imperative for nurses and other providers to address this health concern within the primary care setting so that parents and their child understand the seriousness of childhood overweight and the impact of healthy eating and activities. The partnerships developed between parents, their child, and the primary care providers are the foundation for preventing and treating children who are overweight or at risk for becoming overweight during early childhood.
