The GREEN Project Lunch Box Study

The GREEN Project Lunch Box Study is a school-based nutrition intervention designed to improve the nutritional quality of foods children bring from home to school. The three-year project, funded by the National Institutes of Health, involves the design, implementation, and evaluation of an innovative communications campaign for third and fourth grade students and their families. The pilot phase of the project was completed in June 2011, and the main intervention took place in schools throughout Eastern Massachusetts during the 2011-2012 school year.
