Childhood obesity has been identified as a major health problem in America. It has been deemed a social and economical problem that has significantly impacted the health of American youth (Small, Anderson, & Melnyk, 2007). The prevalence of childhood obesity has been associated with the development of chronic illnesses in the pediatric population, such as diabetes type 2 and hypertension, which more commonly impacted adults. Health care providers are essential to intervening with obese children in an appropriate environment. Currently there are barriers in communication on this topic dilemma between parents and health care providers.
