education. Health education through audiovisual media is considered important because it displays elements
of moving images and sounds that stimulate more senses. This study aims to determine the effectiveness
of audiovisual health education media to increase knowledge, attitudes, and behavior of adolescents in the

towards vegetable and fruit consumption (p-value: 1.0 and 0.71).
