This chapter discusses the role of parents in the prevention of childhood obesity, with a particular focus on how best to involve parents in treatment as well as preventive efforts. Parental involvement differs widely from one study to the next, making it difficult to compare interventions and draw conclusions as to which approach may be the most effective. The chapter reviews international childhood obesity interventions that involved children or adolescents between the age of 2 through 19 and at least one parent. This review was not intended to be exhaustive but rather to examine select published literature.

Keywords:   parents, parental involvement, overweight, obesity, children, intervention, eating disorders, prevention, education
