Strategies designed to increase social support, particularly those that focus on the support role of families or parents, can be an important component of interventions targeting eating behaviors. Common programs using social support include those that work with families and parents, target peer influence, and provide support groups. These approaches help to create a supportive environment for healthy eating. Often, social support strategies are used in combination with other strategies such as personal counseling or as a component of comprehensive nutrition programs.
