*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.
Part of the SNAP-Ed Strategies & Interventions Toolkit.* Nutrition education program designed to increase consumption of fruits and vegetables and increase physical activity through direct education and PSE level intervention. Go Wild can be used in curriculum for 3rd through 5th grade, and the social-ecological model to most effectively influence food and physical activity behaviors. Go Wild with Fruits & Veggies! is designed to involve students in active learning. * The engaging flip book or presentation is used to share information and guide discussion. * Lessons are organized by fruit and vegetable colors. * The cartoon animal character for each lesson models behavior through a story and is interwoven throughout activities. * Lessons include games, music, dance, tasting opportunities, and other activities. This helps stimulate all five senses and keeps students engaged throughout the whole lesson.
