Abstract

We examined pediatric insurance status and receipt of weight-related anticipatory guidance in the 2008-2010 Medical Expenditures Panel Survey (n = 12 438). Hispanic children were more likely than white children to report diet and exercise counseling, regardless of insurance. Given the risks of overweight and obesity among Hispanic children, these findings are promising.
