Healthy Choices Inspired by Take Control!

September 16, 2020

At the end of the Take Control program, several of the participants sent the nutrition educator “thank you” notes stating how they were inspired to eat healthier foods and be physically active.

Many students mentioned they enjoyed the foods they tasted and having the recipes makes it possible for them to make at home for their families. One participant, stated she already eats healthy foods most of the time; however, she indicated that the nutritional information she learned on added sugars, sodium intake, and on the difference about fats, has educated her on making even better food choices.

Each “thank you” note had its own story to share providing feedback on the success of the Steps to Health SNAP-Ed Program offered in partnership with NC State Extension throughout North Carolina.

"My #1 goal is to drink more water and eat right to live longer for my kids."
