This study evaluated retention of the effect of a home-based, practitioner-initiated nutrition education model.
Children with elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels were randomly assigned to one of two nutrition interventions or to an at-risk control group.
Intervention effects were evaluated 3,6, and 12 months postbaseline.
The parent-child autotutorial group demonstrated significant increases in knowledge and, along with the counseling group, decreases in total and saturated fat intake.
Also, the autotutorial and counseling groups retained a majority of their initial LDL cholesterol decrease.
Knowledge of heart-healthful and dietary fat intake as well as dietary change can be affected and retained via home-based, practioner-initiated nutrition interventions with hypercholesterolemic children, although some form of ongoing intervention may be necessary to produce lasting decreases in LDL cholesterol levels.
