Fit Families

This child obesity prevention program targets parents of 2 to 4 year old children at 9 Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Projects in Wisconsin. The evaluation results during the Wisconsin Partnership Program grant showed that WIC children participating in Fit Families increased their fruit and vegetable consumption and daily physical activity and reduced their juice consumption and screen time, compared to WIC children who were not enrolled in the one year program. The program is funded by USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education via the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. (Lecoanet, Busarow, Lindsley).
