Increasing Children’s Fruit and Vegetable Exposure: Tools for Practitioners Serving Families Experiencing Limited Income

About This Webinar:

This webinar will focus on nutrition for children affected by poverty. Many children are at risk for obesity and challenges developmentally. The discussion provides steps providers can implement to improve health and developmental outcomes for children in low-income families.

Learning Objectives:

After this presentation, attendees should be able to :

  1. Summarize the states of nutrition for children and low-income families.
  2. Summarize the evidence-based practices of the WISE intervention, a classroom or home-based approach to increasing children’s exposure to fruits and vegetables.
  3. Apply WISE’s evidenced-based practices to design outreach activities to engage families in improving nutrition.

Food Security in Focus

Take advantage of OneOp’s Food Security in Focus collection offering both live and on-demand programming related to food security.

Among our nation’s active-duty service members and their families, an estimated 24 percent are food insecure. Food insecurity adversely impacts racial/ethnic minority populations, lower-income populations, and rural and remote populations. Additionally, a rise in economic insecurity throughout the Covid-19 pandemic has contributed to increased food insecurity in vulnerable populations. Join OneOp as we focus on expanding food security for the military family and mobilizing family service professionals at federal, state, and local levels to work together on this issue.
