Curriculum Approval Process

Curriculum Fidelity and Modification

In CFHL, use of evidence-based curricula helps provide the most effective nutrition education interventions to our target audience. Using curricula as designed ensures the quality of the nutrition education.  Modifying curriculum is sometimes necessary and allowable if the curriculum does not meet the needs of an agency or target audience.  The links below provide access to a document outlining the curriculum modification process and a training on curriculum fidelity.

Evidence Based Summaries

The USDA requires that SNAP-Ed Programs implement evidence-based approaches. The CFHL, UC Program uses many curricula that were developed by the University of California.  Evidence Based Summaries were developed for these curricula to outline their effectiveness in encouraging behavior change in the food, beverage and physical activity choices of our target population.
