The results of this study showed that the SBNP had a positive impact on reducing many health risks.
It was seen in this study that according to the EHI, salt intake had been reduced after the SBNP. It is reported in studies that a significant percentage of adolescents sprinkle salt on their food without first tasting it (27).
In this study, students were asked about canker and cold sores, gingival bleeding and hair loss in order to evaluate their vitamin deficiency and it was found that after the SBNP, there were statistically significant decreases in the incidence of these conditions.
To conclude, the strength of the SBNP and its positive effects were seen in its implementation in a small group for a short period; it was observed that the program contributed to increasing the number of meals adolescents were eating, reducing their salt intake, raising their Rbc, Hb and Htc values, paring down their waists, and reducing their blood pressure values, as well as to decreasing the percentages of canker and cold sores in the mouth, gingival bleeding and hair loss.
