This curriculum is part of the USDA’s national SNAP-Ed Toolkit — a one-stop shop for organizations committed to improve nutritional health in their communities.

SNAP-Ed Toolkit :


A home-based, family-level, direct education intervention designed to increase fruit and vegetable consumption, decrease added sugar intake, increase physical activity, decrease sedentary/screen time, promote healthy sleep, and promote emotional regulation, providing low-income, SNAP-eligible American Indian (AI) families with skills and tools needed to make healthy lifestyle choices.The program addresses the need for family based culturally appropriate materials and combines Indigenous knowledge with US diet and physical activity guidelines. The program also can be delivered in group settings or family visits if more direct engagement is desired. Monthly wellness kit is sent to families with children aged 3-8 years. $30 per kit per family.
