Abstract

The aim of this work was to develop and evaluate the effect of a nutrition education intervention in a group of return migrants workers at rural areas of the State of Yucatán, México. The study included 54 subjects who were selected through non-probabilistic sampling in three communities in the center of the State. Didactic material was developed which consisted of seven lessons in nutrition including concepts mentioned in the Health Belief Model and the Social Cognitive Theory. The lessons were applied to an intervened group (n = 27), taking other as control (n = 27). The pre and post test effect of the intervention was evaluated using a questionnaire, which was tested statistically with the Wilcoxon test. To compare differences between groups before and after intervention Mann-Whitney U statistic test was used. The didactic material produced a significant increase (p ≤ 0,05) in the knowledge ratings in the intervention group after being instructed. In addition, this group scores were higher (p ≤ 0,05) in the post test when compared with the control group, demonstrating the effectiveness of the intervention.
