BTS Results

After the successful implementation of Beyond the Stars, an in-depth evaluation was conducted on the pilot program 
The evaluation included children, teachers, and parents to help understand the experiences of participants in the pilot. It also helped to record children’s ability to identify healthy foods, gauge attitudinal shifts around healthy eating, and reveal unexpected outcomes.

Increased awareness of healthy food options, especially local foods

Shifted children’s preferences towards healthy food

Demonstrate how storytelling and innovative technologies are an effective method for educating children and fostering behaviour change

Taught the delivery team about doing innovation in the Pacific

This approach may well provide the catalyst for transitioning the small-scale outcomes evident in the Beyond the Stars pilot, to a much larger program that can sustain long-term impact.
