Havas S, et al. Final results of the Maryland WIC Food for Life Program. Prev Med. Nov 2003;37(5):406-416.
This study evaluated the Maryland WIC Food for Life Program, a nutrition education intervention to improve healthy behaviors. Postintervention, participants in the intervention group consumed a smaller percentage of calories from fat, more fruits and vegetables, and more fiber. There was also a dose-response relationship between the number of nutrition education sessions attended and the magnitude of change from baseline.
