Homemakers' food behavior practices and diet scores were compared at enrollment in Georgia's Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, at graduation (when their diets met the minimum daily nutritional requirements level), and one year after graduation. Program factors studied were teaching method and frequency of teachers' visits. Characteristics of the 225 subjects studied were place of residence, educational level, age of homemaker, and age of children. Food behavior practices and diet scores were maintained for all subjects after graduation. No differences occurred between entrance and graduation for subjects taught by the group method, for farm subjects, or for subjects having children in one particular age category. (author)
