Ounce of Prevention
OAND Liaison: Karen Bakies
The Ounce of Prevention tool kit includes simple nutrition and activity messages to help prevent obesity through the first 12 well child visits. Addressing the growing epidemic of obesity is top priority for many healthcare providers. Physicians who regularly monitor growth and provide anticipatory guidance related to parenting, eating, and physical activity can perform an important intervention in a child's life.
