EFFECTS OF TEACHING HEALTH HABITS TO OBESE CHILDREN ON EATING, EXERCISE, AND SELF ESTEEM

This study will investigate the effects of teaching obese children better habits of eating and exercise, on improved habits and self-esteem. The subjects for the study will be drawn from the general school population (ages 12 to 14). Subjects (n = 20) will receive a brief intervention regarding nutrition, activity, and snacking. Subjects will serve as their own control. Each participant will be pre- and post-tested regarding eating behavior, activity, snacking behavior, and levels of self-esteem. The hypothesis will be tested through the application of quantitative analysis (one-way ANOVA) to the data collected.
