Promotion of healthy lifestyles in the family environment

Author(s): Roque Garay, Ariamna1; Segura Segura, Mª Elisa2

Obesity is considered “the new epidemy of the twenty-first century” by the World Health Organisation (WHO). In Spain, it affects a high percentage of the population; it is considered the most worrying aspect in childhood and youth which figures in these stages of life are among the highest in Europe. Promoting a healthy lifestyle from an early age is the main and most effective method to erradicate the disease and complications associated with it (illnesses with a high rate of morbidity-mortality, social and psycological disorders and high health costs). Therefore, it seems appropriate to design a project aimed to developing knowledge, attitudes and abilities within the family environment, where habits and manners last for the rest of life.

Aim. To design a project in Health Education to promote healthy food habits and exercise generally focused on health within the family environment.

Methodology. Nursing intervention to groups of 20-25 participants, 6-12 years and their mothers / fathers, of seven educational sessions. Including number of sessions, duration, frequency and location. Contents, educational techniques and teaching material: according to the aims. Evaluation: structure, process and results.

Conclussions. It is expected to promote, through the nurses’ intervention, a family lifestyle focused on health, as a response to the high demand from health institutions and society in the fight against obesity.
