          Objective To understand the status quo and influencing factors of overweight and obesity in preschool children, and to provide scientific theoretical reference for the prevention and control of overweight and obesity in preschool children in Urumqi.

          Methods Stratified cluster sampling method was adopted to select 1 897 preschool children from 10 kindergartens in Urumqi from October to December in 2021 to understand the status quo of overweight and obesity of preschool children by measuring their height and weight. The influencing factors were collected by questionnaire survey, including Chinese preschoolers’eating behavior questionnaire, Chinese preschooler’s caregivers feeding behavior scale, 3–6-year-old children’s home nurture environment scale, and characteristics and influencing factors of physical activity among preschool children.

          Results The prevalence of overweight and obesity in preschool children was 31.21% (592), including 19.50% (370) overweight and 11.70% (222) obesity. Childhood overweight and obesity detection rates varied significantly by age, sex, child dietary habits, father BMI, maternal BMI, and maternal pre-pregnancy BMI (χ 2 = 19.63, 28.75, 9.45, 18.21, 18.45, 19.36, P<0.05). Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that gender, children’s eating habits, paternal BMI, pregnancy BMI, satiety responsiveness, external eating, initiative eating, weight concerns, behavior restricted feeding, physical activity and family physical activity environment were the influencing factors of overweight and obesity in preschool children ( OR = 0.52, 1.43, 1.51, 1.44, 0.69, 0.74, 1.35, 1.71, 0.81, 0.96, 1.10, P<0.05).
