What is SNAP-Ed?
SNAP-Ed is short for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education. This program offers nutrition education to teach families how to make healthy food choices on a limited budget and to be physically active for good health.
SNAP-Ed classes teach behavioral changes such as how to:
- Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains
- Drink fewer sugary beverages and reduce sodium intake
- Increase physical activity levels
- Maintain appropriate nutritional balance at all life stages
For more information, please visit USDA SNAP-Ed.
In 2018, the Florida Department of Health received the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) funding from the United States Department of Agriculture through the Department of Children and Families. The funding is allocated to support county health departments in implementing SNAP-Ed programming.
