Intentions : «[T]his paper aimed […] to examine changes in eating behaviors and plasma leptin concentrations in overweight and obese children participating in a 1-year family-centered lifestyle intervention and […] to determine if children randomized to the modified intervention group […] resulted in changes in eating behaviors and leptin concentrations after 1-year. This study reports on secondary outcomes from a previously published randomized controlled trial […].» (p. 82)
Échantillon/Matériau : «This study enrolled 78 children […]: 75 children completed the 6-month visit and 73 children completed the 12-month visit.» (p. 83) «Study took place from 2011 to 2013 in greater Montréal […]. Eligibility included healthy 6- to 8-year-old children with no known illness, who were overweight […] or obese […].» (p. 82)

The results of this study show «that eating behaviors can be positively changed if families are educated and guided to meet nutrition and PA [physical activity] recommendations versus simply given generic information on healthy lifestyle behaviors.» (p. 86) During the process, all «interventions followed the same educational platform, but were tailored to meet the needs of the families and children by identifying barriers to meeting goals and strategizing how to achieve them considering all members of the family.» (p. 82) The results also reconfirm that «children with obesity are highly sensitive to environmental cues of food and tend to consume foods in response to negative emotions […].» (p. 86) Generally, these findings «suggest that the family-centered life-style approach was successful in favorably changing eating behaviors and reducing leptin concentrations in intervention groups compared to control.» (p. 88)

We also sought to explore community perceptions about perinatal and newborn health, and to determine local attitudes about nutritional supplements.» (p. 129)
Échantillon/Matériau : «Participants were Inuit midwives  and students  working in 3 birthing centres in western Nunavik.» (p. 129) Les données ont été récoltées par le biais d’entretien de groupe (semistructured focus groups) faits par voie téléphonique.

«The midwives strongly believed that the health of pregnant women and young children in their communities could be better, through better food choices, acceptance of supplements and rejection of detrimental lifestyle choices (e.g., use of alcohol, cigarettes and drugs). However, the midwives also shared a clear perception that rapid social changes (especially related to diet and access to affordable healthy foods), lack of education, widespread substance abuse and reduced community involvement challenged efforts to support healthy pregnancies.» (p. 132) «The midwives of the Inuulitsivik region expressed concern about unhealthy behaviours in young women and about the decline of traditional beliefs, particularly during pregnancy. They were eager to engage the community and promote knowledge locally to reduce nutritional deficiencies and optimize health during pregnancy and infancy.» (p. 133)
