Abstract: A sedentary lifestyle is related to childhood obesity and can be improved through behavior change. School-based obesity prevention programs can be a way to teach children how to maintain a healthy lifestyle, which includes increasing activity levels. We have worked to incorporate obesity prevention programming in after-school programs. Lessons feature information on healthy eating and improving levels of physical activity at home. Our research has shown positive impact through parent and child report of positive change in healthy eating and increased exercise levels. We have been working to collect data on children's physical activity levels using Fitbits.
