Parents & Families

Nutrition programming with youth and families takes place at various Dane County community agencies where 50% or more of the participants are eligible to receive FoodShare assistance. Nutrition programming consists of one-time groups, multi-session groups and learn-while-you-wait education.

Our parents and caregiver education is funded by the Expanded Food & Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Evidence-based Curriculum for Parents or Caregivers of Young Children includes:
Eating Smart, Being Active
MyPlate for My Family
Feeding for Healthy Eating
Healthy Cents
