Nebraska EFNEP partnered with 4-H Food Smart Families program, a National 4-H Council grant funded by UnitedHealthcare, to equip youth and their families to make healthy living part of their everyday lives through nutrition education, cooking skills and food budgeting skills, as well as physical activity. The program utilized Choose Health: Food, Fun, and Fitness (CHFFF) curriculum that was developed by Cornell University's Division of Nutritional Sciences in collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Extension's 4-H Youth Development Program. At the end of the program, participants received a bag of groceries to take home and practice their new cooking skills, which encourages replication at home. Family and Community Engagement (FACE) events were offered to help reinforce program concepts within participant families as well as strengthen community partnerships. EFNEP staff engaged in adult-youth partnerships and taught these lessons along with 4-H Youth Ambassadors, who assisted in the implementation of the lessons and preparing the take-home groceries. The 4-H Food Smart Families program implementation was a partnership between Nebraska Extension's EFNEP, SNAP-Ed, and Extension's Food, Nutrition and Health team.
