Nutrition, physical activity and food safety practices are lifestyle choices that greatly influence the health of people, families and communities. Healthier people are better able to contribute to a robust economy. Past research has demonstrated the health benefits of an active lifestyle and sound nutritional practices. The Healthy Lifestyles education programs translate relevant research into effective healthy nutrition, physical activity and food safety practices people can use to improve their lives, homes and businesses.
The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) provides educational programs and conducts social marketing campaigns that promote healthy food choices and physically active lifestyles for those on a limited budget.
