Summary

The report evaluates the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) in Missouri by comparing the dietary adequacy and nutrition knowledge of 200 program families representative of urban, small town and rural areas with that of 200 similarly representative non-program families. Data were gathered by personal interviews taken in March, 1972, employing the 24-hour recall questionnaire method. The tabular presentation of data states that: program families' dietary adequacy was not consistently better than that of control families; both program and control groups' nutritional adequacy was comparable; program families' nutrition knowledge was higher than that of control families; nutritional adequacy depended most on educational level; median percent recommended dietary allowance and nutrition adequacy did not depend upon tenure in the program; and food buying and nutrition knowledge increased with more frequent visits of program workers. The study concludes that the EPNEP has been successful in its efforts, especially during the first 18 months of a family's participation, but it questions whether the data indicate that the adequacy of diets observed among program families can be attributed to the program. A 29-page appendix tabulates the percent recommended dietary allowance for eight nutrients for each location where the data were gathered. (JR)
