The healthy choice isn't always the easy choice.
Illinois Nutrition Education Programs (INEP) provide nutrition education to individuals and families in communities around the state of Illinois. This program is provided as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed).
By providing easy solutions through in-person lessons and online resources, this program makes the healthy choice an easy choice where families eat, learn, live, shop, and play. Programs are based on current research and engage learners in practical, hands-on classes and activities.
Program staff also partner with local organizations as part of the overall effort to promote healthier settings and food choices. By focusing on improving food access, increasing the likelihood of healthy choices, and helping families save more money, we are making a difference in the lives of Illinois families and their communities.
Through in-person lessons and online resources, our team helps others learn how to make healthy choices. Programs are based on current research and engage learners in age-appropriate, practical, hands-on classes and activities.
