Mohave Picture CroppedMohave County SNAP-Ed is on the move.  We are getting off to a great start delivering  nutrition education programs throughout our county.  Currently we are servicing schools with gardens and Adult Education sites.  We teach simple nutrition messages through a variety of learning methods that include: presentations, one on one engagement, and live cooking demos.  Through the variety of teaching methods and educational reinforcements we are changing lives one participant at a time.

 

Jill Bender Food Demo SmoothieParticipants have had the opportunity to try some things for the first time like fresh basil and garlic, taste testing fresh vs. canned fruits and vegetables, samples of different varieties of whole grains, learning to make natural smoothies with spinach, and much more.  Through exposure to new and different foods, participants are able to better incorporate healthy food choices in their daily living.  SNAP-Ed nutrition classes help give participants the information needed to make healthier choices when shopping, snacking, and preparing foods.
