About the Network
The Wisconsin Nutrition Education Network facilitates collaborative planning of nutrition education programs at the state and local levels. We promote healthful and enjoyable eating so that Wisconsin's low-income individuals and families receive consistent, positive, relevant, accurate, and effective nutrition messages.
Our 2007-2010 plan will focus on incorporating Learner Centered Approaches (LCA) to nutrition education. Materials that make use of LCA will be identified and made available. Training will be provided for educators on general LCA techniques as well as specific curricula. Local partnerships may remain the same or adapt as needed.
The Network's Steering Committee represents nutrition programs with funding from the USDA, University of Wisconsin-Madison Nutritional Sciences researchers, and others with an interest in serving low-income individuals. The development of the Nutrition Network was funded in October 1996 by a Cooperative Agreement with the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
