A cluster randomized, controlled trial of approximately 3,500 4th and 5th grade children from low-resource schools in California was used to evaluate the Power Play! Campaign. Students who participated in over a 10-week intervention period experienced:
- Significantly greater change in FV consumption (¼ cups/day more)
- Significantly more PA during recess and lunch (5 min/day)
- Students in both intervention and control groups gained more PA minutes overall
* SNAP-Ed Strategies & Interventions: An Obesity Prevention Toolkit for States is a compilation of interventions. The toolkit was developed by USDA's Food and Nutrition Service, The Association of SNAP-Ed Nutrition Education Administrators (ASNNA), the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Center for Training and Research Translation (Center TRT), and the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR), a partnership between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes for Health (NIH), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the USDA. It is designed and updated to help state SNAP-Ed administrative and implementing agencies identify evidence-based obesity prevention programs and policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) strategies and interventions to include in their SNAP-Ed plans.
