Objective: To examine whether expressed intentions modified program impact on diet. Methods: A nutrition education intervention was conducted with African American women in Washington, DC. Dietary recalls and surveys at post-intervention and follow-up were analyzed. Results: At 20-week follow-up, frequent attenders reported .13 more fruit and vegetable servings per additional point post-intervention behavioral intentions score (p = .03) and .10 servings per point on follow-up intentions score (p = .07). Conclusions: Sustained intentions predicted dietary change, informing measurement and theory for nutrition interventions.
