Early Care and Education – SNAP-Ed

SNAP-Ed is the nutrition education component of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP-Ed programs improve the likelihood that low-income families and youth will make healthy food choices and choose active lifestyles consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Last year, through the HealthMPowers SNAP-Ed work, 86 Georgia early care and education teams implemented 106 nutrition and physical activity improvements in their centers, reaching over 5,000 children. HealthMPowers helps early care and education sites identify teams that assess their programs and design improvement plans to increase healthy eating and physical activity.  HealthMPowers also provides model lesson trainings on nutrition and physical activity for each classroom and provides resources to help sites put their plans into action.
