The evaluations examined physical and attitudinal changes as a result of participation in the nine-week program, and included the following measurements: * Attitudes toward healthy eating and activity, before and after program implementation. * Social norms: the behaviors and attitudes toward healthy living held by those around the participants. * Perceived behavioral control over specified desired outcomes: the children's belief that they can make healthy choices and succeed in accomplishing them. * Eating and activity behavior intentions. * Actual eating and activity behaviors. * Physical body-composition changes. Data collection was conducted in five phases, with the initial round in the first week of the program in order to gather baseline information on demographics, attitudes, social norms, perceived behavioral control, valuation, and current eating and physical activity behaviors.
