Part of the SNAP-Ed Strategies & Interventions Toolkit*

An entirely digital experience with interactive components, these online lessons can be used anywhere and at anytime ... for free! These 4 lessons are Google Classroom friendly and replaces the former Eat Move Win program.

Dairy Council of California’s Let’s Eat Healthy: Teens (LEH Teens) is a direct education intervention, which consists of four online lessons that seek to improve high school students’ awareness of their food environment and the link between food and health. The lesson content is accessible online and includes a teacher guide with instructional slide presentations to inform and engage high school students through common technology platforms. The program aligns with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the California Health Education Content Standards, encouraging self-reflection, goal setting, and balanced eating habits.

Evaluation Information

Let’s Eat Healthy Teens was released in 2020 as an adaptation from the Eat Move Win online program. Data from Let’s Eat Healthy Teens demonstrate the following outcomes from student-reported survey data: 

The Let’s Eat Healthy Teens lessons were adapted from a previous technology program, Eat Move Win, in 2020. A formative evaluation was conducted to assess the effectiveness of the EMW program at changing students’ nutrition knowledge, attitudes, self-efficacy, barriers, home environment, and dietary intake behavior. Results from the evaluations (student pre- and post-surveys, quizzes as part of the lessons) showed the following after completing the EMW lessons: 

  • Students answered an average of 71-75% of the online nutrition knowledge quiz questions correctly. 
  • Students showed significant improvements in attitudes towards trying and eating healthy foods, and significant improvements in self-efficacy (i.e., confidence) to eat healthy foods and limit unhealthy foods. 
  • Students reported significantly increased consumption of milk (+0.18 servings/day), whole grain bread (+0.13 servings/day) and pasta/rice (+0.12 servings/day), and breakfast. They also reported significantly decreased consumption of soda (-0.10 servings/day) and marginally decreased consumption of cookies (-0.07 servings/day).

SNAP-Ed Connection Comments

*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.
