MetadataShow full item record
The initial effect of a health-education intervention on the health-related knowledge of 20 first and second graders from a local public school that caters to a high percentage of at-risk children was investigated. The results indicated a significant increase in knowledge with regard to the identification of the five major food groups. The results also indicated a significant change in the participants' perceived importance of exercise. Six weeks into the intervention participants were able to identify more food groups and identified exercise as more important than they had previously. Due to its in initial success, the intervention will continue. The lessons will increase in complexity to explore more detailed issues of health with the participants.
