Research

In my research, I evaluate a model of Child-Centered Health Dialog (CCHD) in Child Health Services (CHS) aiming to promote a healthy lifestyle in families and prevent overweight and obesity in preschool children. Child Centered Health Dialog means a structured dialogue between the nurse and the child in presence of its parents using eight illustrations based on the most important modifiable feeding and related practices associated with overweight or obesity in preschool children.
