MU programs teach Missouri families to make healthy food choices
Date:8/9/2011

thankful for what the program taught me about eating well and exercising," said one youth participant. "Because of what I've learned, she has lost 45 pounds and we are a lot more active together."

FNP educated more than 400,000 Missourians last year. Teachers who work with program coordinators in their classrooms report observing changes in students' behaviors and hearing the students talk about choosing healthful snacks, trying new foods and becoming more active. Teachers also report their own increased awareness of nutrition as a result of the curriculum.

"A young mother volunteered in a third-grade class and after class, she told the teacher how much she had learned through her child's participation in FNP," a nutrition educator said. "She and her husband made lifestyle changes for their family based on information their child learned in the program."

Another MU Extension program, Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP), targets women with children to help them achieve health and fitness for their families. Lessons include managing a food budget by planning grocery shopping and comparing prices in the store, making better choices by reading nutrition labels and eating nutrient-rich foods, and safe food preparation practices. Last year, the program reached 6,280 participants in 53 counties across the state.
