Evaluation of the 4-Year Growing Healthy Kids School Enrichment Kit Program
Objective: We describe 4-year outcomes of the Growing Healthy Kids School Enrichment Kit Program (SEKP), a nutrition and physical activity education curriculum, among teachers, students, and parents of students in kindergarten through second grade (K-2). Methods: After use of the SEKP in 356 classrooms (N = 12,000), teacher knowledge, subject-area confidence, and behaviors were evaluated using frequencies and percentages. Student knowledge and test scores across the 4 years were evaluated using t-tests. Teacher and parent agreement percentages regarding student and family behaviors were assessed. Results: A statistically significant increase was noted in student knowledge and various areas of teachers' perceived knowledge, self-reported confidence, and behavior levels. Conclusion: SEKP is an effective nutrition education and physical activity K-2 classroom curriculum.
