Abstract : Consumption of vegetables and fruit in obese adolescents is still very low. One of the efforts to improve it is by providing nutrition education. This study aims to compare the effectiveness of leaflets and short message service (SMS) in changing the pattern of vegetable and fruit consumption among obese adolescents. The research design was an experimental study with a non-randomized pre-post test design. This research was conducted for 5 months in which respondents were given intervention for 1 month. The method of selecting subjects using purposive sampling method, the number of samples of each group of 20 people. The Wilcoxon test was used with a significance level of p <0.05. The results showed that the mean score of the group educated with leaflets and SMS had a significant increase (p = 001 and p = 0.002). Where education with leaflets increases the knowledge score by 2.2 points and education via SMS increases the knowledge score by 2.35 points. Education with leaflets and SMS can significantly increase the frequency of vegetable consumption (p = 0.002 and p = 0.005). Where leaflets increased the frequency of vegetable consumption by 1.13 times per day and SMS increased the frequency of vegetable consumption by 1.37 times per day. Nutrition education using sms media can be an alternative to increase the consumption of vegetables and fruit in obese students. It is recommended to use other types of media to conduct nutrition education, such as social media which are now so familiar and loved by students.
