Part of the SNAP-Ed Strategies & Interventions Toolkit*
The BEPA 2.0 program includes the curriculum, training, provision of BEPA 2.0 Toolkits and technical assistance, partnership development, wellness committee activities, and PSE change. BEPA 2.0 can also be used with any age-appropriate nutrition curriculum to increase and integrate PA into existing lesson plans; it includes a user manual, activity cards with curricular content, and a set of portable play times. The PSE components include teacher trainings to support and optimize implementation.

*SNAP-Ed Strategies & Interventions: An Obesity Prevention Toolkit for States is a compilation of interventions. The toolkit was developed by USDA's Food and Nutrition Service, The Association of SNAP-Ed Nutrition Education Administrators (ASNNA), the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Center for Training and Research Translation (Center TRT), and the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR), a partnership between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes for Health (NIH), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the USDA. It is designated and updated to help state SNAP-Ed administrative and implementing agencies identify evidence-based obesity prevention programs and policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) strategies and interventions to include in their SNAP-Ed plans.
