Low parental health literacy limits child’s weight-loss options

July 30, 2015

Parents who struggle to understand basic health nutrition information are less likely to turn to recommended weight-loss strategies for their children, including increasing physical activity and eating more fruits and vegetables, according to research in Appetite.

In an analysis of survey data from U.S. parents of preschool-age children participating in a prospective, longitudinal panel study, researchers found that parents with low health literacy endorsed a narrower range of strategies overall and also were more likely to consider unsafe weight-loss choices, including diet pills.
