dc.description.abstractThe objective of this community-based, statewide intervention is to improve eating behaviors in the Hispanic population of Georgia using a curriculum that was primarily developed for African Americans. The study design was a one-group repeated measure test consisting of 455 women aged 18-61 divided into two groups. Participants completed a pre-test, a series of nutrition education lessons, and a post- test. Several measures showed improvements after the intervention. A 0.7 cup consumption increase of vegetables per day, a 1.1 cup increase in fruit per day, was shown in the Hispanic statewide group (GAEFNEPHispanic10 (n=429)). Clarke-Gwinnett11 (n=26) group showed improvements as well: a 0.8 cup consumption increase of vegetables, a 0.2 cups increase of fruits, and a 0.6 cup increase of milk per day. Both groups showed improvements in nutrition-related behaviors such as thinking about healthy food choices when deciding to feed the family and reading the “Nutrition Facts” labels.
