  Purpose

The objective of this project is to pilot test a behavioral intervention that includes a home visit component compared to a clinic only and standard of care for the treatment of obesity in preschool age children. The results of this study will inform the design of a larger randomized control trial.

H1: The clinic + home intervention will result in a significantly greater decrease in BMIz compared to the in clinic only intervention or pediatric standard of care at 6 months post-treatment.
