    Sammanfattning

    Background: A family intervention has been developed targeting parents with children having obesity. The parents attended the programme during one year. The assumption was that a change in parents’ daily occupations to include more regular meals, physical activity and a variation among obligations and rest would lead to a healthier lifestyle and a normalization of their children’s BMI.

    Aim: The study aim was to investigate whether parents attending the intervention, gradually changed their time use and experiences in occupations together with their children regarding; preparing and having meals, in physically active and inactive occupations.

    Method: The research context was a randomized trial involving families with preschool children having obesity. Forty parents (n=40) were included. Time-geographical diaries were collected from all parents (T1-T 6) together with The Occupational Value Assessment with predefined items (Oval-pd). Analysis was performed by a repeated measures design.

    Results will be reported and discussed at the conference.
