Abstract

Recently, the number of elementary school students with obesity is increasing in the later elementary grades in Japan. In order to examine medical students provided lecture for improving lifestyle and inspiring interest in health including standard body weight, body mass index (BMI), and obesity for students and their parents, a cross-sectional questionnaire study on fifth grade of elementary students in response to 45 minutes lecture was conducted. The number of students who knew their height and weight were increased by 6 to 10% three months after the lecture. It was found that one lecture from medical students generated positive effect about the percentages of students who knew the information about their height and weight three months after lectures. The results of this study would be helpful as basic data of lifestyle guidance and health education not only for elementary school students but also for their parents and further research work of health education including weight control.
