dc.description.abstractMothers of young children play a significant role in shaping their young children’s fruit and vegetable (FV) intake. Internet-based interventions are a convenient and accessible method for delivering health education. This pilot study assessed the following two research questions: 1) Is mobile technology a feasible and acceptable way to increase nutrition knowledge and cooking confidence among mothers of young children, and 2) Will increasing nutrition knowledge and cooking confidence increase the daily number of FV servings that mothers of young children consume? Findings indicated that mobile technology is a feasible and acceptable way to increase nutrition knowledge, cooking confidence, and FV consumption. Furthermore, a higher adherence for the text-messaging component than for the blog was observed. A significant association between increased cooking confidence and increased FV intake was also observed. Outcomes from this study can be utilized to develop larger interventions and be incorporated into existing nutrition programs involving mothers such as Healthy Child Care Georgia.
