					                                       Logic Model of: 7-3-3-1, Healthy Families Having Fun (After School Initiative)
                                       Healthy Eating and Active Lifestyle Anchor Program 11/2006
Situation Statement: In Prince George’s County, 31% of youth 2-19 years are overweight, and only 56% of youth 6-19 engage in moderate physical activity.
Overweight adolescents have a 70% chance of becoming overweight or obese adults. Physical inactivity and poor nutrition are major risk factors for overweight and
obesity. The University of Maryland’s Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) collaborated with the Prince George’s County Public Schools: Before and
After School Extended Learning Program (BASELP) to implement a nutrition education program to help reduce and prevent overweight/obesity in youth. The 7-3-3-1:
Healthy Families Having Fun nutrition curriculum was adapted for implementation in after-school settings and was used to encourage children to consume more fruits and
vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat/non-fat milk, and increase physical activity.

Outcome Summary:
Children will learn the basic concepts of 7-3-3-1 and change their behavior to increase their consumption of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat/non-fat milk, and
increase their physical activity and decrease their physical inactivity (e.g., screen time).

                                                Evaluation - How will you measure and report your outcomes?
Pre/Post assessments will be obtained during each series at every site by EFNEP/MCE to measure knowledge and skills for healthy living as promoted by the 7-3-3-1

Parent surveys will be obtained to determine the effectiveness of the parental materials, their interest in participating in at least one parental class during the series, and to
determine if their children discussed the program with them.

Evaluation results will be published and presented in nutrition and public health journals and at professional conferences (e.g., Society for Nutrition Education and
American Public Health Association)
