Abstract

A quasi-experimental study was conducted to assess the impact of the Youth Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program on 3rd and 4th grade children attending Cleveland Municipal schools in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Pre- and post-test surveys were used to obtain information on nutrition knowledge and self-reported behavior from intervention and control group children. Children in the experimental group increased their nutrition knowledge. There was no significant change in children's self-reported nutrition behaviors.
