Food Smarts is an interactive, learner-centered curriculum choice for nutrition educators bringing programs to low-income audiences throughout the United States. The curriculum is intentionally flexible; care is taken to ensure educators retain control over the type of activity used to meet the stated outcomes.
The Washington State SNAP-Ed program has approved the use of Food Smarts, for youth (grades 4-12) and adults starting with FFY2019. We ask that all educators using the curriculum attend a training.
Instructor guides support the participant workbooks. There is an instructor guide for adult lessons and one for youth. Each local provider will need to obtain your own instructor guide and participant workbooks. You will need to bring these materials to the training you attend.
You can get these in several ways:
