Evaluation Information

The series was tested in a community-based pilot study, designed to improve fruit and vegetable consumption and reduce barriers of older adults participating in congregate meal programs in Northeast Georgia. A total of 54 participants completed pre-tests followed by the nutrition education series and 47 completed the post-test. There was a significant improvement in several fruit and vegetable intakes after the intervention. African American participants who responded correctly for the 5 fruits and vegetables recommendations increased from 13% to 41% post intervention. The intervention improved behaviors, attitudes, and knowledge related to fruit and vegetable intake, as per authors.
