We write in response to the article by Scherr et al
1entitled “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.

- PreviewWe thank you for the opportunity to respond to Wood et al1 with respect to their letter about our article, “A Multicomponent, School-Based Intervention, the Shaping Healthy Choices Program, Improves Nutrition-Related Outcomes.”2 We appreciate that Dr David B. Allison, the current Dean and Provost Professor at the Indiana University School of Public Health, and his colleagues have shown interest in our pilot study. Although we appreciate their expertise, we respectfully submit that they may not be fully familiar with the challenges of designing and implementing community nutrition education interventions in kindergarten through sixth grade.
