Abstract :

The article reports on a study to evaluate the effect of a multicomponent behavioral intervention on underserved preschool-age children's body mass index (BMI) over a period of 36 months among those at the risk of obesity. The results indicate that a 36-month multicomponent behavioral intervention did not change BMI trajectory among underserved preschool-age children in Nashville, Tennessee.
