Development of a communication tool between pediatric clinic team and parents of overweight and obese children by Teresa Christine Sutter( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Several behavioral goals have been identified for the prevention and treatment of childhood obesity were used to determine parent's perception, comprehension, and importance of the behavioral goals, strategies for the three of the goals, and a weight management letter (WML). Twenty-one non-Hispanic black parents with children between the ages of 5 to 10 years old in the Rush Pediatric Primary Care Clinic were interviewed using open-ended questions. All but one parent was female and the majority of parents were low-income. Over 60% of the children were overweight or obese. Over half of the parents (52%) said the goals were helpful. The strategies for the individual goals were regarded as helpful. All but one parent said the letter would be useful to receive. The WML should continue to be used as it was stated as useful by parents

Infant feeding practices and growth performance in the first year of life by Caitlyn Elizabeth Busche( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Infant feeding plays an important role in long term health status. The purpose of the is study is to describe demographic correlates of various infant practices breastfeeding, formula feeding, mixed feeding (breastfed and formula fed) and complementary food introduction and their potential impact on growth. A modified version of the Infant Feeding Practices Study II (mIFPS II) questionnaire was developed, tested for content validity, and administered to 166 caretakers of infants, ages 28 days to 6 months in a pediatric outpatient population at a large medical center in Chicago, Illinois. Demographic variables were compared across infant feeding practices using chi square and Kruskal Wallis tests with SPSS, version 23 (IBM, Chicago, IL): Weight for length z scores were used to classify weight status according to WHO growth chart standards. Chi square tests were used to compare weight status across feeding mode. Rapid weight gain was defined as a change in weight for length z score of>0.67 between birth and 6 months. There were no differences in the proportion of infants who were obese or normal weight compared as a function of feeding mode at 1, 3, or 6 months of age. Rapid weight gain was observed in 53.8% of breastfed infants, 65.0% mixed fed infants, and 75.0% of formula fed infants. Certain infant feeding practices were associated with key demographic characteristics. Knowledge of such associations is vital for clinicians to better target education to these groups. More research is needed to determine the long term impacts of infant feeding practices
Determining the association between child dietary behaviors and weight status by Morgan Elizabeth Deihs( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[The Expert Committee (EC) published dietary recommendations for preventing or treating overweight/obesity in children. The Rush Pediatric Primary Care Center administered the Child Nutrition and Physical Activity (CNPA) screener between 20122015 (n=2,230) to assess dietary behaviors. The purpose of this cross-sectional, retrospective study was to determine the association between the child's weight status and dietary behaviors assessed on the CNPA. Based on logistic regression, increasing age (1.14 OR(95%CI 1.10-1.18)p<.001), being non-Hispanic black (2.23 OR(95%CI 1.35- 3.66)p=.002) or Hispanic (2.77 OR(95%CI 1.64-4.67)p<.001) and consuming 2% milk (2.61 OR(95%CI 1.77-3.85)p<.001) or non-fat/1% milk (6.97 OR(95%CI 4.1211.8)p<.001) increased the odds of being overweight, obese or severe obese. Increasing number of meals (.76 OR(95%CI .61-.95)p=.015) and the parent correctly perceiving the child's weight status (0.13 OR(95%CI 0.01-0.02)p<.001) decreased the odds of being overweight, obese or severe obese. In conclusion, age, race and milk type consumption were associated with overweight, obese or severe obese weight statuses
Determining the reliability and validity of the child nutrition and physical activity screening tool to prevent or treat childhood obesity by Kelly Brigid Nemec( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Eleven experts in pediatric weight management were used to determine the content validity of the Child Nutrition and Physical Activity (CNPA) screening tool. Two thousand two hundred and thirty children between the ages of 2 to 18 years old from Rush Pediatric Primary Care Center were used to determine the construct validity and internal consistency of the CNPA. Construct validity was conducted determining the association between responses to CNPA items and child weight categories of obese vs. normal weight and overweight. Principal component factor analysis with varimax rotation determined factor structure of behavior and perception/confidence/importance items. Cronbach's a determined the internal consistency (reliability) of factors. At least 50% of the expert sample agreed that the six CNPA domains were theoretically relevant, clinically significant, had clarity in wording, and were cohesive, except for the wording in the confidence, importance, and perception domains. The factor analysis yielded two factors for the perception/confidence/importance items and three factors for the behavior items. The Cronbach's a for the perception/confidence/importance items were 0.862 and 0.754 and 0.514, 0.483, and 0.629 for the behavior items. The construct validity supported majority of the research presented by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The CNPA demonstrates moderate reliability and validity. Changes and further development of the CNPA will likely be needed to increase the reliability and validity of the CNPA
Infant feeding practices and growth performance in the first six months of life by Christine Michelle Allegretti( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although there are infant feeding recommendations available and suggested for caregivers to follow, many either abide by the recommendations incorrectly or not at all. The purpose of this study is to describe to determine the prevalence of various types of infant feeding practices (including frequency, additions to breast or formula, etc.), to determine how much milk/formula is prepared and stored, and where or from whom this information was acquired, if at all. These findings give us an indication as to what infants under the age of six months are being fed, how much and how often they are being fed, and what kind of information caregivers are receiving regarding infant feeding practices. Additional research is needed to further refine the instrument for self-administration and further test the use of such a tool to different clinic settings to aid the clinician on how best to inform/guide caregivers about infant feeding practices of infants up to six months of age
Determining the association of youth's physical activity and sedentary behaviors with weight status by Erin Michelle Taylor( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Expert Committee (EC) set recommendations on physical activity and sedentary behaviors for obesity prevention and treatment. The objective of this cross sectional, retrospective study was to determine associations between the youth's demographic, physical activity, and sedentary behaviors with weight status using the Child Nutrition and Physical Activity (CNPA) screener. The CNPA was given to patients at Rush University Pediatric Primary Care Center between 2012-2015 (n=2,230). Chi square analysis and Forward Wald logistic regression were conducted. Meeting EC recommendations for physical activity (0.60 OR (95% CI 0.45-0.81)) (p=.001), media time (0.76 OR (95% CI 0.57-0.996) (p=.047), no TV in bedroom (0.67 OR (95% CI 0.510.87)) (p=.002), and parent accurate weight perception (0.02 OR (95% CI 0.01-0.03)) (p<.001) decreased the odds of being overweight or obese. In conclusion, meeting the EC recommendations for physical activity and sedentary behaviors entered in to the model decreased the odds of being overweight or obese
Infant feeding practices in the first six months of life and subsequent growth performance by Leila Marie Shinn( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Proper nutrition during early life is imperative for growth and development. Furthermore, infant growth is measured with CDC or WHO standards, as a static or change (longitudinal) outcome. There is a need to define optimal growth in relation to feeding practices, especially in diverse samples. The purpose of this study is to determine the association between infant feeding practices (breastfeeding, formula, mixed feeding (both formula and breast milk) and complementary foods) in infants aged six months or less using the modified Infant Feeding Practices Study II (mIFPS II) questionnaire and indicators of growth (i.e. weight-for-age, weight-for-length and head circumference z-scores/percentiles) in the same infants up to 12 months of age using WHO growth charts. The validated mIFPS II questionnaire was administered to 247 caretakers of infants between 28 days and six months of age in a pediatric outpatient clinic located in Chicago, IL. At least two time points for growth data were collected for 149 of the 247 infants surveyed. We examined demographic correlates of infant feeding practices in relation to WHO growth indicators using chi-square and Kruskal Wallis tests with SPSS, version 23 (IBM, Chicago, IL). Weight status was categorized according to WHO growth chart standards using weight-for-length z-scores. Additionally, rapid weight gain was defined as a change in weight-for-age z-score of &ge;0.67 between birth and six months of age. Logistic regression using rapid weight gain was conducted with feeding practice as the predictor and additional demographic covariates. The largest proportion of our 149 caretakers was African American (37%), with 46% having a college degree of above and 48% being enrolled in WIC. Of the infants, 32% were formula fed, 18% were breastfed, 25% were mixed fed and 25% were complementary fed. Feeding practices were associated with caretaker race-ethnicity, caretaker education level and WIC enrollment. Nearly 40% of infants demonstrated rapid weight gain by 6 months with weight gain being significantly less among exclusively breastfed infants as compared to mixed fed infants. Those who were complementary fed were almost five times more likely to have rapid weight gain than those breastfed exclusively. Our findings suggest that various demographic correlates are associated with feeding practices. Exclusive breastfeeding may have a protective effect on obesity. However, more growth data are needed to adequately characterize correlates of infant growth performance in this diverse sample. Accrual of caretaker/infant dyads are ongoing
