National surveys which have tracked weight internationally for over 40 years have shown an increase in overweight children and adolescents. Overweight children are more likely to develop type II diabetes, hypertension, orthopedic and lung problems. A recent study reported obese children and their parents felt the child?s quality of life was similar to pediatric cancer patients. The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners responded to the obesity epidemic by convening a group of national experts on overweight children to develop evidence-based guidelines for practitioners?  use  when counseling their patients and families  regarding strategies to encourage ?Healthy Eating and Activity Together (HEAT).  The experts  established work groups for each child age group (Infant, Toddler, School-age, and Adolescent) and a research group to evaluate the available evidence to support the recommendation developed by the  age-appropriate work groups. A comprehensive search of the available literature was conducted and the criteria established by the American Academy of Pediatrics was used to  level  the evidence. This presentation will be a discussion of the process of developing evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and the resultant recommendations of NAPNAP for obesity prevention for children. The recommendations include age specific recommendations for physical activity, limiting inactivity, healthy eating, as well as, a discussion of the use of motivational interviewing to encourage activity and behavior change in pediatric clients and their families.
