JAIMOVICH, Sonia et al. Effects of an intervention on line in self-care feeding behavior. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.39, pp.72-83. ISSN 1695-6141.

Results of the project "Prevention of overweight and obesity in Chilean school children: A bet on the enterprising capacity of children" (FONIS SA10I20016), in response to the question: Is it possible to help change behaviors associated with overweight and obesity through an intervention designed for this purpose? Material and Methods: A quasi-experimental study in 5th and 6th grade children of primary municipal schools, La Pintana, Metropolitan Region, Chile. After obtaining informed consent, 6 schools were selected by random cluster sampling for the study group n = 442 and 6 schools for control group n = 328. The intervention, with software supported in Web page, was performed according to the auto diagnostics of behaviors associated with feeding, identified with the Moore-Child Nutrition Index (MIN-C©) instrument. The analysis of results used parametric tests with R 2012. Results: There is a positive effect of number of times entered to the website on behaviors observed in the post test compared with the pretest in the intervention group. Conclusion: The effect of the intervention was statistically significant for the studied behaviors, in children who used the software 8 times or more.
