Evaluation of implementation methods using a nutrition-fitness curriculum in fifth and sixth grades



Evaluation of implementation methods using a nutrition-fitness curriculum in fifth and sixth grades



Journal of nutrition education 17(3): 100-104



A team based, integrated nutrition-fitness program was implemented for 903 fifth and sixth grade students from 50 classes including both urban and rural. There were 3 curriculum-implementation treatment groups (control group, orientation treatment group, and consultant treatment group); each was given both pre- and post-tests to determine nutrition-fitness knowledge. Orientation treatment group teachers received only a 1 hour curriculum orientation, while the consultant treatment group teachers received 3 hours of nutrition-fitness workshop and 12 hours of monthly nutritional consultation. For the sixth grade students, the consultant treatment group showed the greatest improvement in nutrition-fitness knowledge. For the fifth grade students there were no statistically significant changes. Teacher and program evaluations by parents and administrators were very good.(mp)
