Abstract

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM: A study was done to evaluate the effectiveness of video assisted teaching programme on knowledge and attitude towards the hazards of fast food among early adolescents. OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the pretest and post test level of knowledge and attitude towards hazards of fast food among early adolescence in the experimental and control group. 2. To evaluate the effectiveness of video assisted teaching program on hazards of fast food among early adolescence. 3. To correlate the knowledge and attitude towards hazards of fast food among early adolescence. 4. To find out the association between level of knowledge and attitude with selected demographic variables regarding hazards of fast food among early adolescence. METHODS: The conceptual framework of the study was based of Nola Pender Health Promotion Model (1997). A quantitative evaluative research approach with experimental (pretest, posttest control group) design was adopted. A total 80 samples were used in this study by stratified random sampling technique. A structured questionnaire and check list type attitude scale was used to assess knowledge and attitude related to hazards of fast food. Video assisted teaching programme was administered among early adolescents. The data collected were tabulated in 12 tables and 4 figures and analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. RESULTS: The results showed that, Majority of the students in control group (82.5%) had inadequate knowledge; and few of them (17.5%) had moderate knowledge about hazards of fast food in pre test and post test whereas in experimental group most of the students (75%) had inadequate knowledge in the pre test, and in the post test very few students (5%) had inadequate knowledge. Majority of the students in control group had favorable attitude (67.5, 65%) and very few had unfavorable attitude (5%, 5%) in pre test and post test whereas in experimental group majority students had favorable attitude (80%) and very few had moderately favorable attitude (5%) in pre test. After the video assisted teaching programme on fast food hazards almost all the students (95.5%) except few developed favorable attitude towards the hazards of fast food in experimental group. The overall pre test and post test knowledge in control (t-6.32) and experimental group (t-13.65) and between control and experimental (t-13.14) was found highly significant and also attitude of early adolescents between control and experimental group (t-2.0945) and before and after video assisted teaching programme in control group (t-6.32) and experimental group (t-13.65) was found statistically significant at P < 0.001. MAJOR FINDINGS OF THE STUDY: The study findings revealed that there was a positive correlation between post test level of knowledge and level of attitude (r=0.414) at P < 0.001. There was significant association between level of knowledge and attitude of early adolescents and habit of taking fast food in control and experimental group. CONCLUSION: This study concluded that, the video assisted teaching programme could effectively increase the knowledge and attitude towards the hazards of fast food among early adolescents. This study clearly stated that, health education plays a vital role in improving knowledge and attitude towards the hazards of hazards of fast food.
