The Authors report a study which they carried out adopting “peer education” as a methodology of food education within the school context. The statistical analysis clearly demonstrates that the group of students who had been educated according to this method, have considerably increased their knowledge of nutrition and, unlike “Note 1”, it has been possible to carry out an appraisal taking into consideration the sex of the students. The peer education method shows a significant increase of exact answers from male students and a highly significant increase of exact answers from female students. The group of students who participated, judged the “peer education method” as a highly positive one. The Authors think, however, that they could have obtained better results if the Peer Educators had collaborated more as a “work team”, and had involved their class-mates more in the project.

Abstract

The Authors report a study which they carried out adopting “peer education” as a methodology of food education within the school context. The statistical analysis clearly demonstrates that the group of students who had been educated according to this method, have considerably increased their knowledge of nutrition and, unlike “Note 1”, it has been possible to carry out an appraisal taking into consideration the sex of the students. The peer education method shows a significant increase of exact answers from male students and a highly significant increase of exact answers from female students. The group of students who participated, judged the “peer education method” as a highly positive one. The Authors think, however, that they could have obtained better results if the Peer Educators had collaborated more as a “work team”, and had involved their class-mates more in the project.
