Abstract
Reports indicate that children are far from attaining the Healthy People 2010 goals for nutrition and physical activity. Schools are likely the most efficacious setting for delivering nutrition and physical activity education to children. Effective and convenient tools are needed for educators to communicate health information to an elementary school population. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a school gardening curriculum at improving the nutrition and physical activity behaviors of elementary school students, specifically fruit and vegetable consumption.
