Expanded Food & Nutrition Education Program-EFNEP Youth
The delivery of EFNEP to youth takes on various forms. EFNEP provides education at schools as an enrichment of the curriculum, in after-school care programs and through 4-H EFNEP clubs, day camps residential camps, community center and neighborhood groups.
Here in Alameda County EFNEP is focusing on two curriculums to educate our youth about the importance of a healthy lifestyle that includes healthy eating and physical activity. The EatFit curriculum is designed to challenge middle school students to improve their eating and fitness choices. Nutri-Link is an innovative internet-based after-school nutrition education program for youth ages 8-13.
Both curriculums promote positive youth development by increasing youth's knowledge of the role nutrition and physical activity has on their health.
