The purpose of this study was to develop a nutrition education program for preschoolers, and to measure it's effects. This program consisted of text. pictures (cartoons), games and topics of discussion. This study was an experimental study undertaken by one pretest-posttest design group. The subjects were 17 preschoolers who were aged 5 and attending an educare center in Seoul. These were the effects of this program: The hypothesis of this study was that "the preschooler's score will be improved after education" was supported (t=5.177, p=.000). Several correlates were examined. There weren't significant differences between pretest and posttest in the importance of balanced nutrition; in the result of under-nutrition; that the black food-group precipitated dental carries and obesity; or the reaction of foods after meals. It is recommended that the nutrition education program not only contain content about the prevent of obesity, but also about the knowledge of various foods and their effects on the human body.
