Acculturation, weight status, and eating habits among Chinese-American preschool children and their primary caregivers: a pilot study


, : Acculturation, weight status, and eating habits among Chinese-American preschool children and their primary caregivers: a pilot study. Nutrition Research 25(3): 213-224

This study investigated acculturation, eating habits, and weight status among 53 Chinese-American children and their primary caregivers. Caregivers' mean acculturation score was 2.1, indicating low acculturation. Caregivers' mean body mass index (BMI) was 23.3; 21% were overweight (BMI>=25). Children's mean BMI was 16.6; 17% were overweight (BMI>=95th percentile).
