Child obesity is a medical condition that affects both teenagers and children, resulting in having too much fat stored within the body and negatively affecting the child.  There are many factors that contribute to childhood obesity in America.  One of the key things is that only 2% of children in America get healthy foods. That means that 2% or less consume a well-balanced diet while 98% or more children do not receive proper nutrition. Obesity in children contributes to reduced life expectancy, and there is a need to develop better eating habits among the children to rescue cases of the chronic trend. To address this problem, I went to the CINAHL database under the nursing database options. I then conducted a search for “childhood obesity” and “prevention” to obtain evidence-based results for this topic. There were thousands of articles to choose from so I randomly browsed the options until I found one that would pique my interest. The most consistently mentioned intervention for the prevention of childhood obesity was nutrition and exercise. More specifically, the nutritional patterns of the parents were more likely to indicate the risk of childhood obesity. For this problem, my intervention will be a nutritional training program that is family based coupled with structured family exercise. Eating behaviors include poor diets where the child might be eating foods rich in fats and sugar such as fast foods, particularly snacks (Suarez, 2020). Calories should be limited for sugary foods and those rich in fats (Filgueiras et al., 2019).

PICOT: Does parental nutritional and exercise behavior have a greater effect at preventing childhood obesity when compared to behaviors that kids are exposed to outside of the home?

Note that in APA there is no heading that says Introduction. The paragraph or two that follows the title on the first page of your text is assumed to be your introduction. Your introduction follows the title of your paper (note that it is not bolded). You should start your introduction with a powerful statement or two to stimulate interest. You should identify the purpose of your paper and provide a preview of what the paper will include. Remember that formal papers are in general in third person so no I, me, we; however, you can use first person in the search section since you are describing what you did.

Significance of the Practice Problem

Start this section with identification of the practice problem. This section should also answer the question “why is this important?” You should address the significance to the patient/client (e.g., pain, suffering, quality of life, impact on income potential, etc.), the family, healthcare system (e.g., impact on cost or delivery systems), and society (e.g., cost of care, need for healthcare policy). Discuss the incidence and/or prevalence and include the financial impact if at all possible. You might discuss the impact on length of stay, readmission, home health care requirements, disability and/or mortality. Also, you should address any quality, safety, legal, and ethical implications. This discussion MUST be substantiated by citations from professional literature.

PICOT Question

This section should include your PICOT question but also should provide thorough descriptions of your population, intervention, comparison intervention, outcome, and timing. This section contains, in essence, your operational definitions of the variables in the question. If you use definitions from the literature be sure to cite them.


Describe the population by age, gender, diagnosis, personal habit, procedure, etc. Be thorough. Describe the population by age, gender, diagnosis, personal habit, procedure, etc. Be thorough. Remember that this is the population that most closely matches the population where you would conduct your EBP change but not so specifically like that population that you cannot find that population in the scientific literature related to your problem and intervention.


Describe the intervention being investigated as a possible means to achieve the outcome. Be thorough and include citations which support this intervention for your selected practice problem.


Describe the comparison. If the comparison is usual treatment, describe what that usual treatment is and include citations to support that it is usual treatment.


Describe the outcome. It should be measurable since you will need to describe how you are going
