Priority Concerns

2. Lack of nutritional options
a. Farmers Market not within CT
b. Food Bank not within CT

3. Lack of education about utilization of

resources and availability of resources
within community
4. Language Barriers due to increasing
refugee and Hispanic population

Nursing Diagnosis
At risk for nutritional deficit among AfricanAmerican refugee population and Hispanics
(specifically youth) living in CT 3501, related
to poor nutritional education, lack of
available resources and transportation,
poverty and disadvantaged living conditions
as demonstrated by absence of farmers
market and food bank within CT, multiple
fast food options (i.e. Burger King)and
convenience stores (i.e. Circle K), & key
informant comments about an abundance of
overweight individuals within the community.

Evidence Based Project

Provide health education regarding
nutrition to the Boys and Girls Club
within CT regarding healthy sugars
and unhealthy sugars (good and bad

Nutrition and Weight Status
Goal: Promote health and reduce chronic disease risk
through the consumption of healthful diets and achievement
and maintenance of healthy body weights.
NWS-2.1: Increase the proportion of schools that do not sell
or offer calorically sweetened beverages to students
NWS-2.2: Increase the proportion of school districts that
require schools to make fruits or vegetables available
whenever other food is offered or sold.
NWS-14: Increase the contribution of fruits to the diets of
the population aged 2 years and older
NWS-17: Reduce consumption of calories from solid fats and
added sugars in the population aged 2 years and older.



Support for Intervention

The Australian National Health and Medical
Research Council state that unhealthy eating early
in life (overconsumption of energy-dense, nutrient
poor foods and drinks are predictors of overweight
and obesity.
The objective is to systematically review the
evidence related to interventions designed to
improve healthy eating habits.
Methods used include the systematic review and
meta-analyses report on data extracted in 2014 in
grades K-6 for the New South Wales Department
of Education and Communities


Support for Intervention

Two of the most important interventions utilized in this
study included health/nutrition education programs that
were related to improved dietary habits along with
policies that would improve dietary habits of elementary
school children if implemented.
One of the most important outcomes of interest involves
reduced sugar consumption or preference (not from whole
fruit)/Limit intake of foods containing added sugar
Dudley et al. discusses the enhanced curriculum
approaches for reducing sugar consumption or preference
in students. Results showed that One study had a success
rate f <0.5 or better for reducing sugar-laden beverages
(fruit juice, carbohydrate consumption)


Evaluation of Intervention
Visuals imagery seemed to provide target
audience with concrete examples of
healthy sugar consumption.
Activity maintained attention/interest
while allowing stimulation and
participation of target audience.
We believe that reiteration is important
and that having the board at the Boys and
Girls Club with serve as a reminder for
healthy sugar eating habits.
