Abstract: In the past few decades, in Quebec, there are significant increases in the prevalence of at-risk-for overweight and overweight among children and adolescents. Moreover, the majority of children and adolescents do not meet daily recommendations for vegetables and fruits (VF) and dairy products (DP) consumption. Therefore, the Quebec education program has encouraged schools to develop new competencies to improve the adoption of healthy lifestyle habits. The Team Nutriathlon, a computer-assisted school-based nutrition intervention, has been created to support this initiative. This program aimed to increase the consumption and variety of VF and DP in children. The aims of this study were (1) to evaluate the impact of Team Nutriathlon, a school-based nutrition intervention, on VF and DP consumption in children, and (2) to evaluate factors that influence the success of the program among high school students. The results of the study show that during and immediately after the program, children in the intervention group consumed more servings of VF and DP compared to the control group. No effect has been shown ten weeks after the program. Students reveal that the use of technology for recording the number of servings, team work, teacher’s and family’s implication and the use of strategies were facilitating factors contributing to the success of the program. Students also revealed that the lack of attendance with the data collection outside of school hours, the user code dysfunction and the incompatibility of the Web platform with students technologic tools (tablet) were barriers for the success of the program.
