Abstract:
Session presented on Thursday, July 21, 2016: Introduction: Globally childhood obesity is increasing (Bauer, 2015; Brown, Kuk & Lee, 2015; Falkner, 2015).Treating obesity-related illness in Florida (25%) costs $6,675,940. Latino children are at a greater risk of obesity with prevalence increasing over time; obese south Florida children (20%) are more likely to develop Diabetes Type 2 and cardiovascular disease.' National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) Miami Chapter was a site for Muevete USA? Project (2012-2015) to reduce USA Hispanic childhood obesity. The program funded by Coca-Cola Foundation (Milan, 2011) was in partnership with U.S. 1st Lady Michelle Obama Let?s Move (www.letsmove.gov). The 2016 project will occur at summer camps at Miami Dade College, Barry University and at a'Miami Marlins Baseball game'funded by Pepsi Foundation. Purpose: To determine if an education program can increase the level of knowledge preventing childhood obesity focusing on 1) awareness/understanding of food labels; 2) daily portions of fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy, protein; 3) incorporating daily physical activity and exercises. Conceptual Framework: King's (1981) concept of perception from Goal Attianment Theory served as the theoretical framework. Perception is a process of organizing, interpreting and transforming information from sense data and memory. It gives meaning to one's experience, represents one's image of reality and influences one's behavior. Methodology: A descriptive exploratory research design was conducted with summer camp children completing five pre/post tests of 15 questions - ?My Plate?; ?Food Label?; ?Physical Activity and Exercise? ?Healthy Snacks?' and ?Goal Setting?. Content validity was established. Community Health ASN & RN-BSN students (90) participated in Muevete projects at South campus (three years) and Homestead (2nd & 3rd years). Students, received 10 community hours for orientation, designing posters and attending events. Children (4-15), were divided into 12 groups with two students/group; taking food cutouts, making plates with appropriate portions, nutritional requirements and reading labels. A FDA representative taught hand washing techniques. Results: At the 1st site over 383 with 130 children participating (2013); ages 5-12;' males 50%, females 50%; mostly Hispanics All mean scores increased pre-to posttest 1st test 3.13-4.67;' 2nd test 2.94-3.72 3rd test 3.50-4.55 4th' test 3.50- 4.13; 5th 'test 2.96-3.52; 125 children participated (2014) ages ranged 4-15 mean= 8 years, kg-8th grade males-62%, females 38%; Hispanic' 55%, White 30%; Black 9%' Asian 6%; pretest-posttest scores increased 9.40--10.68, 13.62% change;' 128 children participated (2015) ages ranged 4-15 mean= 8.51 years, kg-8th grade males- 59%,' females 41%; Hispanic 74%, White 20%; Black 5%' Asian 1%; pretest-posttest scores increased 9.77--11.81, 42% change. At the 2nd site over 211 with 102 children participating (2014) ages ranged 4-15 mean= 9 years; males- 54% females 46%. Hispanic 41%, Black 38%,' White 13%, Asian-8% pretest-posttest scores increasing 8.33-9.45, a 13% change. 109 children participated (2015) ages ranged 5-12 mean= 8.51 years; males- 65% females 41%. Hispanic' 41%, Black 36%,' White 22%, Asian-1% pretest-posttest scores increasing 9.77-11.81, a 21% change. This 2016 data will be compared to the 2013, 2014 and 2015 data. Discussion: Children (594) drew plates with food portions (www.choosemyplate.gov), ate healthy snacks, exercised and danced to the Zumba, did hand washing techniques, loved ?Moving-On? t-shirts. Parents received nutrition classes. Most missed question -?How much Sodium is in entire food product?? on a food label. Sodium is 440 mg but for 4 servings = 1760mg. Conclusion: Children learned healthy food habits to overcome childhood obesity. This program increases knowledge of obesity for Hispanic/non-Hispanic children and associated healthcare costs
