Results: The factor attitude toward healthy eating, and healthy behaviors decreased in the control group, while in the experimental group there was a slight increase in the average factor both in attitude and behavior factor. The only statistically significant differences between the averages of the measurements before and after the intervention in the control group, were in both attitude factor (t (66) = -3.108, p = .003) compared to the behavior factor (t (65) = -3.350, P = .001).
