An Exploration of Body Image Perceptions and Education Needs of Military Parents of Preschool Children
It is important to understand the military service members’ and their families’ weight and body image perceptions in order to adequately develop intervention programs for the service members and their families. Also, preschool-age children hold negative attitudes toward peers who are overweight or obese, and these attitudes may be related to their experiences in family environments (Holub, 2008). Thus, it is important to understand children’s body image. The purpose of this study is to understand body image perceptions and educational needs of military parents of preschool children.
