Temple receives $3.7 million to study parenting styles' effect on childhood obesity
Date:3/14/2011

that preventing obesity in childhood is critical, so we want to implement a program that will help mothers promote healthy child behaviors as early as possible, to reduce the risk of obesity later."

"We know that if our kids are going to grow up and win the future, they have to be healthy and receive the right nutrition," said NIFA director Richard Beachy. "NIFA supports research and the development of methods, built on sound science, to reverse the trend of rising obesity and assist children and their families adopt healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime."

In addition to Fisher's work, several studies have been published out of CORE focusing on the prevention of childhood obesity. Last year, Gary Foster, director of CORE, published a study which found that school-based nutrition programs could be helpful in reducing rates of overweight and obesity in middle-schoolers.

Prior to that, researchers at CORE worked with the Food Trust on a study that looked at the spending habits of school children at local corner stores. The study found that children were spending a little over a dollar a day per visit, which amounted to about 300 extra calories per day. This research was even lauded by First Lady Michelle Obama, during a visit to Philadelphia last year to kick off her "Let's Move" campaign.

"The increasing prevalence and serious consequences of childhood obesity are pushing us to find solutions that go beyond the clinic and reach greater numbers of children," said Foster.

Foster and Robert Whitaker, professor of public health and pediatrics at CORE, will also collaborate on Fisher's study. "It's the first grant that will bring together the unique expertise of multiple investigators at CORE," she said.
