The ultimate goal is that the experiences will lead to a positive and lasting behavior change in food choices. Assessing progress towards this goal can be challenging, particularly when working with children – who have limited control over the food that is offered to them and often have limited memory or ability to report historic behaviors.

Through my years of work in Edible Education, I have compiled some of the most effective methods I have found for assessing progress towards food-related behavior change. Click below to take a look:
