Packaging and Spreading Proven Pediatric Weight Management Interventions for Use by Low-Income Families

Purpose: The purpose of this NOFO is to increase the availability and number of packaged effective pediatric weight management interventions (PWMI) that can be used by healthcare, community or public health organizations to serve low-income children and their caregivers. This will be achieved by having researchers take existing evidence based PWMI, and convert them into user-friendly “packaged” materials so that the PWMI can be replicated and pilot tested in real world settings. The demonstration will provide ongoing support to children and families through the PWMI and referral to community-based resources for healthy nutrition and physical activity behaviors. The long-term goal of this NOFO is to increase the access to and uptake of acceptable, effective, and packaged PWMIs by institutions that serve low-income children.
