AIM: To investigate conversations between nurses and parents in Swedish child health services, and to assess to what extent attention is directed towards dietary and physical activity behaviors in children. METHODS: Twenty-three nurses audio-recorded one session each. Recordings were assessed and topics were classified according to pre-determined categories. RESULTS: The three most frequent topics of conversation concerned physical examinations of the child (30% of session time), talking to the child to establish or maintain contact and interest (15%), and development of language skills (12%). Dietary habits came on fourth place (10%), and physical activity ranked 14 (4%). CONCLUSION: Attention to dietary and physical activity behaviors in children is infrequent in Swedish child health services. Concern is raised about the efficacy of prevention efforts against childhood obesity. ©2013 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica ©2013 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
