Abstract
Background: Adolescence is the stage at which health behavior is formed. Limited information about family life leaves adolescent girls susceptible to greater risks from sexual abuse, pregnancy, and violence.

Objective: The objective of the study was to assess the baseline knowledge regarding family life education with a greater emphasis on nutrition and subsequent change after intervention through family life education by the expert.

Materials and Methods: Study design: It is a cross-sectional intervention study (pre and post). Study subject: Adolescent girls from 11 to 16 years were taken. Sample size: The sample size was 206. Sampling method: Lottery method. The pilot study was conducted from July 1, 2013, to August 31, 2013, among 50 adolescent girl students (20% of the sample size) from Zilla Parishad High School, Nidamanuru.

Results: Of the 250 study subjects, 20 (8%) were age group of 1112 years, 190 (76%) were 1314 years were age group, and 40 (16%) were 1516 years age group. Knowledge regarding small family norm was improved from 84.40% to 97.20% with educational intervention which is statistically highly significant (P < 0.05). Knowledge regarding increased demand for nutrition and iron during adolescence was improved from 39.20% to 92.40% after educational intervention which is highly statistically significant (P < 0.05).
