Food as Medicine: Evaluating the Impact of Home-delivered Vegetables and Whole Grains on Diet of Food-insecure Families
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
Food insecurity predisposes to poor diet, thereby increasing risk for diet-sensitive chronic disease. This trial is to evaluate the impact of a model of weekly home-delivery of locally-grown vegetables along with selected whole grains on diet among low-income children living in a household with food insecurity. The investigators plan to enroll children (10-15 years) who will participate along with their parent/caregiver. Intervention will consist of 12 weeks of weekly delivered food plus recipes and text-messaged links to cooking instruction. Dyads will be randomized (2:1) to either immediate intervention or a wait-list control group, and diet and diet-related behaviors will be assessed in-person as well as over the telephone.
