Abstract: A nutritional education intervention (NEI) was conducted among 129 fifth and sixth graders at a randomly selected governmental girls' elementary school in Riyadh. Randomized posttest only, experimental group design was used, where 63 pupils acted as intervention classes and 66 were the control group. The present study demonstrates that the mean knowledge score of the first posttest for the intervention classes (5th and 6th graders) was significantly higher than that of their control (F=91.147, p<0.001).The mean self-efficacy (SE) scores of the control class of 5th graders and intervention class of 6th graders were significantly increased at post-posttest (t=2.819, p<0.01 and t=4.561, p<0.001 respectively). The mean practice score of the posttest was lesser among the intervention class of the 5th graders than their control, but these means were much higher than that of both classes of 6th graders (F=6.856, p<0.001). Stepwise linear regression model at posttest reveals that number of session, pupils' age and mothers' work were the predictors of pupils' knowledge score and explained 41.6% of the variation in knowledge score. Residence and total knowledge score were the predictors of pupils' self-efficacy score and described 8.4% of the variance in self-efficacy score. Total self-efficacy score and total knowledge score were the predictors of pupils' practice score and explained 24.3% of the variation in practice score
