The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to develop a family-centered nutrition program that addresses the high rates of childhood obesity among Latino children in the United States. The proposed nutrition program aims to prevent obesity at an early age through parental educational workshops and child physical activity. This health disparity calls for culturally-sensitive programs and future research regarding culturally competent services. Addressing the issue of childhood obesity is essential in promoting the physical and psychological well-being of children. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate culturally sensitive practices and interventions effective among the Latino population. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
