CAMPOS S, M. Cecilia et al. Mekuido: on line intervention for chilean school children to support prevention of overweight. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2013, vol.40, n.1, pp.55-61. ISSN 0717-7518.

The MeKuido intervention is described, designed for the project "Prevention of overweight and obesity in Chilean children: Bettinhg on the enterprising capacity of children" (FONIS SA10I20016). Subjects and Method: A descriptive intervention study on a randomly selected population by cluster at 50% of municipal schools in the district of La Pintana, with children enrolled in 5th and 6th grade of primary school who agreed to participate (n = 468). Mekuido, central element is a software with four sections built according to Orem's referential framework. Post intervention, a satisfaction questionnaire was applied. Results: The implementation in the context of school activities proved feasible but not without difficulties. The satisfaction questionnaire was answered by 355 children (90.8%). All closed questions showed over 80% of satisfaction with the intervention and would recommend their use. Conclusion: The Orem framework allows the design of interventions to change behaviors related to feeding. Its use is feasible in the school context, requires determination and commitment of teachers. The strategy can be incorporated into the curriculum and contribute to the development of transversal objectives.
