Self-Monitoring Tools and Handouts

Self-Monitoring Tools and Handouts

The use of self-monitoring tools, such as food-logs and diaries, and mobile health technologies, has been shown to help with weight loss management. These and other related methods help children and parents monitor day-to-day activities and weight-loss progress.

As you communicate with families, self-monitoring tools also can help children and parents understand barriers and assist with goal setting. See the Food Log worksheet for more information.
