Part of the SNAP-Ed Strategies & Interventions Toolkit*
This ten-chapter nutrition and physical activity curriculum, for children ages 3-4 and their family, includes activities that encourage young children to try new foods. Each lesson identifies a goal and objectives, and most lessons include a food demonstration or cooking activity, and a list of relevant reference materials. Also, each preschool lesson includes a copy of a take home handout called "Parent Pages."

* 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 designed 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.
