PRADA G, Gloria Esperanza  y  HERRAN F, Oscar Fernando. IMPACT OF STRATEGIES TO INCREASE THE CONSUMPTION OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES IN COLOMBIA. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2009, vol.36, n.4, pp. 1080-1089. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182009000400004.

During the years 2007-2008, a study was carried out in Lebrija (Colombia) to evaluate the impact of two strategies implemented in families with school-age children to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables at home. Sixteen homes were intervened with the A strategy while twenty-three homes were intervened with a B strategy. Thirty-four homes served like controls. These strategies included, among others, informative shops, preparation of recipes, activities in-group and evaluation of tasks. At the initiation, 3.0% of the intervened homes consumed five or more portions increasing to 26.3% at the end of the intervention, an increment of8.8 times. In the control group, the consumption of five or more daily portions was of 2.0% at the beginning and 0.0% at the end. There was no difference between strategy A and B in the increase in consumption (0% to 23.5% and 4.3% to 28.6%, respectively. The two evaluated strategies had positive impact, the A on the consumption of fruits and vegetables, the B on the consumption of fruits.
