The prevalence of overweight children and adults has been increasing steadily over the past three decades. Behaviors related to diet and nutrition are often established in early childhood. Toddlers most often develop healthy eating habits through parent modeling.

In this article we review the curriculum Raising Healthy Eaters, a program that integrates parenting and nutrition.
