Abstract:
The health risk behaviors contributing to the morbidity and mortality of children and adults, including poor dietary practices, are often established in childhood. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke, potentially preventable diseases, comprise 65% of the mortality in the United States and have been linked to dietary habits formed in childhood. Self-efficacy, the belief in one's own ability to perform a task, is a construct from social cognitive theory that has been used as a determinant of dietary behavior in children. School-based nutrition education programs have used traditional teaching methods (TTM) to teach healthy eating to children, however, the increasing technological literacy of today's youth raise the question of whether computer-mediated communication (CMC) could be effective to enhance self-efficacy for healthy eating in children. This study compares CMC to TTM in effectiveness for promoting self-efficacy for healthy eating in school-age children. The research design is a pre-test-post-test control group design. The population consists of pre-adolescent children in an urban area of a western state. Subjects will be randomly assigned to TTM, CMC, and Control groups. The Health Behavior Questionnaire dietary subscales and child self-efficacy subscale will be used to measure dietary behavior and self-efficacy for healthy eating.
