● Decreased risk of obesity among elementary students who have participated in nutrition education.

● Improved cognitive development and a potential to decrease behavioral outbursts in an educational setting.

● Increased nutrition knowledge and selfefficacy as well as decreased BMI and waist circumference amongst elementary students.
