The use of interactive technologies to promote health behaviors is a rapidly expanding field. Yet, the integration of these technologies in the development of physical activity and nutrition interventions for adolescents is in its infancy. Health in Motion, a multimedia obesity-prevention program for adolescents, is described as a case example of a Web-based interactive program for promoting physical activity and fruit and vegetable consumption among high school students. Lessons gathered from existing programs are summarized and used to offer future direction for advancing the development of adolescent interventions in this field.
