Population Based Intervention to Prevent Obesity in Kindergartens (TigerKids)
Not Provided

Behavioral intervention at Kindergarten setting aiming at increased fruit and vegetable consumption, decreased intake of high energy foods, snacks, sweets, increased intake of water/low energy drinks, decreased intake of high energy drinks. Physical activity should be more than 1 hour/day and TV/media consumption less than 1 hour/day.

Main questions are:

Do children differ in intervention and control kindergartens according to their nutrition behaviour? Do children in the intervention kindergartens have a higher physical training than such in the control kindergartens? Data were collected with a standardised questionnaire.

Do children differ in intervention and control kindergartens according to their body mass index?

The program is based on actual cognitions and methods of the early education science. In the initial phase study part I (2003-2006) we will study over three years in 75 kindergartens of four administrative districts in Bavaria, Germany: Bamberg, Günzburg, Ingolstadt and Schwandorf.

The objective of the study part II is to evaluate the effects of the TigerKids intervention program on overweight prevalence in childhood. Data concerning BMI, nutrition behavior and physical activity are assessed both at baseline (September/October 2007) and after 10 months intervention in > 450 control- and intervention-kindergartens in Bavaria.
