This session examines a highly successful school and family-focused program to manage weight and improve health in a high risk Mexican-American population. In each of the past eight years eighty percent of the study adolescents lost or maintained weight, and two-thirds kept it off over two years. Data exploring the B-modification, physical education, and snacking portions of the study are examined and a deep look at the government's 'What America Eats' survey will explore snacking patterns.

Define the challenges to implementation and specific parameters to be measured in a successful community-based weight management program

Understand the relationship between behavior-modification techniques, physical activity, and healthy snacking in successful weight management

Articulate the latest trends in snacking patterns, with specific insight into types of snacks, frequency patterns, and nutritional consequences for various age groups
