If I apply the cognitive theory to the targeted population of children between the ages of12-18, I can deduct that changing eating habits and exercise routines will not happenimmediately. This means that in order to change the negative habits I will have to replace themwith positive habits over a period of time in order for them to be effective.There are many strategies that I could use for my aggregate. If I implemented cookingclasses, they would need to be on a routine basis such as every other week. This would help thepopulation receive a wide variety of healthy recipes, along with getting them in the habit ofcooking healthy meals. I could also implement frequent nutrition classes, but the informationwould have to remain consistent and accurate for the targeted population to respondappropriately. Another strategy would be to keep the population’s attention and make thelearning more entertaining. I could do this by implementing routing physical activities, whilealso teaching about the health benefits and the different forms of physical activity. This will helpkeep this population engaged, while also relaying the necessary information over a period oftime.You do not learn bad habits overnight so you cannot be expected to learn good habitsovernight either. Ultimately, the cognitive theory believes that learning takes time.Aliakbari, F., Parvin, N., Heidari, M., & Haghani, F. (2015, February 23). Learning theoriesapplication in nursing education.
