Module 3 Wrap-Up


So, now you know what is behind the problem of excessive weight gain in children in a community where you work. Using an ecological approach to assess the underlying causes of the problem has helped ensure you have chosen appropriate targets for intervention.

Now it is time to decide exactly how you and your team will intervene. This module will help you with building your collaboration, deciding on appropriate methods and strategies, and developing your action plan.

At the end of this module, you should be able to:

  • Discuss the rationale and approaches for building and facilitating effective collaborations for addressing nutrition issues
  • Identify appropriate intervention methods and strategies for addressing priority predisposing, enabling, and reinforcing factors contributing to excessive weight gain in children
  • Develop an action plan for addressing childhood obesity in your community
