Abboud R., Khalil I.
The aim of this study is to determine the effectiveness of a multicomponent intervention program for nurseries’ educators on nutrition status of children in 3 private and 1 public Lebanese nurseries. The multicomponent intervention program consisted of a nutrition education course, activities to be implemented with children and a parent session. The study enrolled 184 children and 30 caregivers at baseline, and 103 children and 25 caregivers post-intervention. Results showed a significantly higher percentage of children had an improved BMI with educators who attended the nutrition education sessions. This study may lay the foundation to develop core competencies for educators.
