What is it?

Goal setting leads the learner through the process of setting a goal. When goal setting is a component of an intervention, positive behavior change in nutrition and physical activity are more likely to occur. Based on our research, middle school audiences need assistance in goal setting. As a result of this research, we developed a new version of goal setting called guided goal setting.


A review of the goal setting methodological research base was conconducted for Eatfit curriculum development and includes a review for adults, adolescents and children.

We developed this new method for our curriculum Eatfit. We adapted this guided goal setting work with adolescents to a new audience: low-income parents.
