Abstract

Obese children mostly become obese adults. The aim of this study was to test whether the kindergarten setting is a successful access point for universal and selective prevention measures for preschool children and their parents. In a randomised controlled trial, the universal effects on risk and protective factors were observed. But recruitment for the selective programme did not work out which may be due to a biased risk perception of childhood overweight development and high prevention self-efficacy. Alternative strategies are explored.
