Obesity Prevention during the Well Child Visit

Updated May 19, 2015
At the end of this activity, overall education is the ability to understand and implement feeding guidance that will reduce risk of obesity by encouraging family meals and avoiding messaging that promotes food restriction during face to face meetings with clients. This will be defined by completion and passing of the post-test prior to receiving CME.
Course Objectives :
  1. Pediatric healthcare providers will implement division of responsibility based feeding guidance during the well child visit;
  2. Pediatric healthcare providers will differentiate guidance that supports child autonomy from pressure-to-eat and restrictive feeding practices;
  3. Pediatric healthcare providers will implement referral strategies to the 5 Keys to Raising a Healthy Happy Eater Class to support early intervention of feeding problems and obesity prevention.

This presentation is approved starting January 1, 2014 and ending December 31, 2016. To receive a CME certificate, you must complete the evaluation and post-test. Participants who answer 2/4 questions correctly will receive CME. CME certificates will be mailed quarterly to applicants satisfying the stated criteria.
