Abstract

ISSUE ADDRESSED:

This paper outlines the implementation strategies and evaluation methods of the Tooty Fruity Vegie (TFV) in Preschools program in NSW Australia which addressed diet, movement skills and overweight indicators.

METHODS:

The TFV program was a one-year intervention conducted during 2006 and 2007 in 18 preschools (matched with 13 control preschools). The study had a quasi-experimental design with pre- and postintervention evaluation of nutrition and physical activity variables as well as anthropometric measures. Details of the program's methodological aspects such as the recruitment process, intervention strategies and evaluation instruments are described.
