Abstract：Objective To investigate the status of knowledge，attitude and behavior of obesity prevention and the intervention effect among primary school students. Methods By using stratified cluster sampling method，2 990 primary school students from grade 2 to grade 4 were recruited from 2 intervention group schools and 2 control group schools in Jiading District of Shanghai. Health promotion on obesity prevention was carried out among students in intervention group. Questionnaire survey was adopted to evaluate the intervention effect. Results After health education，the single reporting rate of“knowing of Chinese food guide pyramid”，“eating vegetables good for your health”，“fruit can not replace vegetables”，“nutrition characteristics of fast food”，“hazards of overeating”，“obesity standard”，“the health effects of being overweight”and“the methods to control obesity”in intervention group was significantly higher than that in control group（P < 0.05）. For the students and parents in intervention group，the proportion of“willing to taking exercise”，“without unhealthy food”and“hoping children keeping healthy weight”after intervention was significantly higher than that before intervention（P < 0.01）. After health education，the students in intervention group with health behaviors，such as feeding on rice and drinking boiled water，accounted for 75.2% and 83.5%，respectively，which were significantly higher than those in control group（59.6% and 78.0%，respectively）（P < 0.01）.
