- CorrigendumJournal of Nutrition Education and BehaviorVol. 50Issue 8
- PreviewThe May 2017 issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior carried a Research Article titled “A Multicomponent, School-Based Intervention, the Shaping Healthy Choices Program, Improves Nutrition-Related Outcomes” (JNEB 2017;49:368-379. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jneb.2016.12.007 ). The authors would like to amend some of the statements made in the paper. Additional analyses were conducted to control for clustering and as a result, the authors have clarified that results of the subanalysis of weight-related outcomes were only observed in the district that fully implemented the program.
- A Comment on Scherr et al “A Multicomponent, School-Based Intervention, the Shaping Healthy Choices Program, Improves Nutrition-Related Outcomes”Journal of Nutrition Education and BehaviorVol. 50Issue 3
- PreviewWe write in response to the article by Scherr et al1 entitled “A multicomponent, school-based intervention, the Shaping Healthy Choices Program, improves nutrition-related outcomes.” We admire Scherr et al for undertaking such a challenging study on so important a topic, and for wisely using a randomized controlled design, the design that allows for the strongest causal inferences.
