Summary:

Housewives of low socioeconomic status either listened to a lecture providing substantive information on the virtues of increasing consumption of milk or took part in a group discussion that addressed these themes, emphasized “what housewives in general might do,” and closed by asking mothers if they would use more milk in their family diets, which mothers indicated unanimously. Two and four weeks later, those in the group discussion condition were more likely to report having increased the consumption of milk. At 4 weeks, 50% of those in the group discussion condition reported increased consumption of fresh milk, versus 14% in the lecture condition.
