The purpose of this project was to develop a program, identify a funding source, and write a grant to educate Spanish speaking Latino families on the relationship between obesity and psychosocial well being in children. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the background of the problem and the solutions that have been attempted in the past.
Latino children and adults have one of highest rates of obesity in the Los Angeles County area. This proposed program was designed to provide educational workshops focusing on childhood obesity at a local community center in the city of Baldwin Park. The potential funding source was the Crail-Johnson Foundation.
The goal of the project is to raise awareness of the prevalence of childhood obesity. Topics focusing on the effects of childhood obesity will be discussed, as well as hosting cooking demonstrations that will educate families on preparing simple meals and snacks that are healthy and nutritious.
