PURPOSE: The prevalence of childhood obesity is rapidly increasing, and has consequences for asthma, sleep apnea, and a number of other long-term health implications. We aimed to gather baseline information about health habits from children in kindergarten and first grade (typically age 5-7 years) using a simple questionnaire and the iClicker electronic response system. The electronic response system was favored in an attempt to reduce costs, and minimize the opportunities for assistance from teachers and other students; however, the iClicker tool had not been validated in this age group.
