Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The number of days per week for which students got at least 60 minutes of physical activity [ Time Frame: 2, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The number of servings of fruits and vegetables consumed each day [ Time Frame: 2, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The number of hours of TV watch each day, including time spent watching TV, videotapes, and DVD's [ Time Frame: 2, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Stage of change for readiness to do at least 60 minutes of physical activity on at least 5 days of the week [ Time Frame: 2, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Stage of change for readiness to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day. [ Time Frame: 2, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Stage of change for readiness to watch two hours or less of TV each day. [ Time Frame: 2, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Computerized Tailored Intervention
Students interacted with the 30-minute program through a series of Transtheoretical Model (TTM) based assessments and tailored feedback messages. A full TTM intervention was delivered for physical activity, in which each of the appropriate constructs of the TTM based on stage of change was addressed. Optimally tailored interventions were delivered for fruit and vegetable consumption and limited TV viewing. These interventions offered feedback on the most important TTM constructs based on stage of change for each behavior. Multimedia components, including audio, video, and animations helped to capture students' interest.
