A randomized pilot test of “Moms on the Move”: a physical activity intervention for WIC mothers

Fahrenwald NL, et al. A randomized pilot test of “Moms on the Move”: a physical activity intervention for WIC mothers. Ann Behav Med. 2002;27(2):82-90.

The aim of this study was to pilot test “Moms on the Move,” a Transtheoretical Model (TTM)-derived physical activity intervention for low-income mothers enrolled in the WIC Program. The intervention was effective in getting sedentary moms to move, as the intervention group had higher physical activity levels.
