Abstract

The Healthy Eating & Physical Activity Curriculum is a bilingual, culturally competent educational curriculum that was developed to address the problem of childhood obesity and it is directed towards parents. This curriculum consists of an hour-long bilingual presentation (on PowerPoint) that addresses healthy eating habits, how to read a food label, and family-based physical activities. Additionally, HEPA curriculum includes detailed instructions on how to present the PowerPoint; a pre and post-test to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention in terms of knowledge gained; a directory of community based recreation/physical activity options; and relevant handouts and materials to support the presentation.
