Fit Families Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) is a successful behavior change program targeted primarily to families of 2- to 4-year-old children enrolled in WIC at Fit Families Centers in Wisconsin. Fit Families Coaches empower families to adopt healthy eating and physical activity behaviors by offering individualized guidance, support, and tools to families each month for a year. Evaluation results for children who have completed the program indicated a significant positive effect in fruit and vegetable consumption, juice consumption, physical activity and screen time. Fit Families strives to help prevent childhood obesity and collaborates with other SNAP-Ed projects and partners in the community.
