This paper reports the findings of a joint UNESCO/School of Education Nutrition Education Project, encompassing the designing, implementation, and evaluation of nutrition education curricula suitable for Grade 9 students in secondary schools in Jamaica. Separate curricula for nutrition in the areas of general science, home economics, and agriculture had been designed in the engagement curriculum design outlined in a 1975 UNESCO publication. The main objective of the project was to compare each of these new curricula with the appropriate section of the curricula in regular use in Jamaican schools, which had been designed by the Ministry of Education. As a spin-off, it also served as an evaluation exercise for these latter curricula. The report details the background to and design of the research, discusses findings, and makes recommendations that largely bear on the need for teacher training
