ABSTRACT
Background: The consumption of hydrogenated vegetable oils, rich sources of both saturated fatty acids and trans fatty acids, is one of the most important risk factors for cardio-vascular diseases(CVD). The aim of this randomized semi-experimental control study was to modify the consumption habits of vegetable oils among families under the cover of health centers of Khomeini city. Materials and Methods: 136 adult women living in Khomein and Mohallat were randomly allocated to case and control groups. Data gathering instrument was a questionnaire based on PRECEDE framework. The educational intervention was weekly conducted in three 60-90 minute sessions based on the PRECEDE framework constructs for two months. Results: Mean scores of predisposing (knowledge and attitude), reinforcing, and enabling factors showed a significant difference in the case group in comparison to the control group(p<0.05). Also, hydrogenated vegetable oils consumption in case group decreased from 72% to 63% , whereas liquid vegetable oils consumption increased from 28% to 37%(p<0.05). Conclusion: Planning and implementation of an educational intervention program based on PRECEDE framework can be effective in reduction of hydrogenated vegetable oils consumption.
