Abstract

Trained instructors may improve intervention delivery and reception regardless of classroom context. Social norms could explain high levels of unhealthy behavior in low buy-in classes at baseline; improvement at posttest suggests that the curriculum may have motivated change. All children need more strategies and supportive policies to overcome a challenging food environment.
