Project name Healthy eating and obesity prevention for preschoolers : a randomised controlled trial
Project Description The overall goal of this project is to conduct a randomised controlled trial to measure the effectiveness of a 10-week healthy eating and childhood obesity prevention intervention, the MEND 2-4 (Mind Exercise Nutrition Do It!) program, that involves both parents and their preschool child(ren).

The MEND 2-4 program involves 10 weekly 90 minute workshops relating to general nutrition, physical activity and behaviours, that are typically held at community health and maternal and child health centres, where parents and their preschool-aged children attend together. Each session involves 30 minutes of guided active play, 15 minutes of healthy snack time based on an evidence based exposure-based technique to promote acceptance and increased intake of fruit and vegetables, and 45 minutes where the children participate in supervised crèche style activities and concurrently the parents attend an interactive education and skill development session, based on evidence-based group-based parent-training principles.
