Summary

A food and nutrition study conducted in six different areas of one state is discussed. The youth phase of the program was designed to provide an educational program for young people from low-income families. Pre-tests and post-tests were prepared and designed to determine the effectiveness of the Tricks for Treats unit in influencing the behavior of the children which would result in better dietary habits. Each young person involved was provided with a copy of the project manual and the leader's guide was used by the person conducting the program. Program objectives included: (1) Provide education for youth in the principles of nutrition, diets, and in the acquisition and use of foods; (2) Contribute to the personal development of disadvantaged youth through improved nutrition; and (3) Contribute to the improvement of diets and nutrition of families by means of educational programs for youth. Test results show that: (1) Those participating in the youth phase of the program did change their eating habits somewhat; (2) Most of the young people in the program know what foods to eat to keep healthy; yet, almost all of the participants fall below the recommended levels in their eating habits; and (3) If the program is to serve a useful purpose, a system should be implemented to decrease the drop-out rate.
