The Kentucky Nutrition Education programs target limited resource families and individuals with nutrition education. The goal is to educate limited resource families with young children to plan nutritious meals on a limited budget, acquire safe food handling practices, improve food preparation skills and change behavior necessary to have a healthy lifestyle.

The Supplemental Nutrition Education Program (SNAP-Ed) is federally funded and conducted by the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service. SNAP-Ed provides nutrition education, cooking tips, recipes, and money-saving ideas to limited resource families. The Nutrition Education Program consists of the following lessons:

  • Food Preparation
  • Meal Planning
  • Steps to a Healthier You
  • Plan for Food Spending
  • Label Power
  • Breakfast Makes a Difference
  • Food Safety
