Youth FSNEP (Food Stamp Nutrition Education Program)
Research tells us that the early years are especially important for establishing habits that will last a lifetime. Let's provide education that will focus on prevention rather than treatment!!
The School Nutrition Education Program is federally funded by USDA and administered by the Univtersity of California Cooperative Extension to provide nutrition education to school where at least 50% of students are eligible for free or reduced school lunches. This is done by providing teachers with free curricula that enchance their effors to teach students about healthy lifestyle practices. The curricula are research-based, pilot-tested and aligned with the California Content Standards. Curriculum Formatting:
We know how busy teachers are, so all curriculum pieces contain concise background information on the topic, easy-to-prepare activities, parent letters that can be easily photocopied and a snack idea to compliment the lesson. They provide opportunities for children to actively learn about healthy eating and exercise.
