Abstract

Objective. To evaluate whether the introduction of an exam room-based educational video in a busy clinic setting can improve Hispanic caregiver knowledge, attitudes, and children's eating practices. Results. Between June and September of 2010, 80 caregivers enrolled in the study and a total of 37 completed the entire study. The majority of caregivers were female (90%) and Hispanic (89.9%) with a mean age of 36.9 years (±10.9). At 1-month posttesting, compared with pretesting, caregivers report their child's consumption of "any" vegetables increased (34% to 70%, P =.01) as did self-efficacy to control portions (55.6% to 81.1%, P =.01). On multivariable analysis, older caregivers were more likely to report improvement of vegetable consumption (adjusted odds ratio = 1.28; 95% confidence interval = 1.01-1.62, P =.04). Conclusion. There may be value in providing nutrition education to caregivers during routine child care using exam room-based educational videos.
