Objective: We have reported that a lifestyle intervention with mothers improved calcium intake and physical activity in both
mothers and their children. In this study, we aimed to describe the strategies and approaches used by these mothers to improve
their children’s calcium intake and physical activity.
Design: A qualitative study using semistructured interviews.
Setting: Population-based convenience sample.
Subjects: A subsample of 39 mothers were taken from a population-based random sample of 354 mothers who had participated
in the original osteoporosis-prevention trial.
Results: Mothers described specific dietary changes
