  • They include the following:

1 individual level
1. Individual level:
  • Primary care providers should direct their attention to mothers instead of focusing on young children.

2 family unit prevention
2. Family unit prevention:
  • This calls for parents and family members to take initiative in the provision of the right food portions, promote bodily activity, exploit actions of everyday living, and reduce inactive behaviors.

3 institutional childhood obesity prevention
3. Institutional childhood obesity prevention:
  • Schools are viewed as a central place where children nutritional and physical activity level can be managed.

4 community level prevention
4. Community-level prevention:
  • The community is involved in structural changes that enhance diet variation along with bodily activities.

  • Health care settings provide an opportune moment to check on the child’s growth rate as well as abnormal body weight.
