Aruna Devi S, Munnaji Mavatkar, Usha Rani C.

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 11–12 years, 190 (76%) were 13–14 years were age group, and 40 (16%) were 15–16 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).

Conclusion: The key to improved quality of life and stable family life lies in better understanding of nutritional, emotional, and physical requirements of life by the adolescent girl which is lacking but can be achieved by creating health awareness among them.
