This pilot study assessing a promotora-led intervention to reduce obesity in Latino preschool children. In spite of higher rates of obesity among this population, there are few specifically tailored interventions available. Though limited in scope, the authors suggest that such a model may be effective in reducing BMI, increasing fruit and vegetable consumption, and decreasing screen time.
