Nutrition Content in a National Nutrition Education Program for Low-Income Adults: Content Analysis and Comparison With the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for AmericansThe purpose of this study was to identify nutrition-related content employed nationally by the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) with adult participants. A content analysis was used to assess the type, frequency, and depth of nutrition content in adult curricula most used by EFNEP nationally compared with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (2010 DGA). All EFNEP curricula reviewed employed the vast majority of the 2010 DGA nutrition recommendations, with differences in the frequency and depth of nutrition content.
Cost-Effectiveness Model for Youth EFNEP Programs: What Do We Measure and How Do We Do It?The Youth Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) is one of the United States Department of Agriculture's hallmark nutrition education programs for limited-resource youth. The objective of this study was to gather opinions from experts in EFNEP and related content areas to identify costs, effects (impacts), and related instruments to develop a cost-effectiveness model (instrument) for youth EFNEP, which does not exist. A cost-effectiveness model determines the economic or financial cost of producing an impact.
