HealthKick aims to promote and increase learners', teachers' and parents' consumption of healthy food and their participation in health enhancing physical activity. This dissertation sub-study forms part of the evaluation of the greater HealthKick project. The primary objective of the study was to compare the dietary adequacy of learners at intervention and control schools after 18 months of intervention. The subsidiary objective was to identify the determinants of dietary adequacy. en_ZA
