Overweight and obesity are major risk factors for a number of chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer (World Health Organization, 2011; National Institutes of Health, 1998). Children with high BMI often become obese adults (Serdula, Ivery, Coates, Freedman, Williamson, & Byers, 1993). According to the World Health Organization (2011), obesity is preventable. While it is well known that obesity can be prevented, it often is not. This article examines how healthy eating education has an impact on food choices of college students in a liberal arts college in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The researchers will discuss the implications for educators, administrators, and researchers. Findings, conclusions, and recommendations will be presented.
