CFHL Approved Curricula Lists

Curriculum Approval Process

This document details the protocol for requesting use of a new curriculum by CFHL, UCCE and EFNEP Programs. The protocol was developed by members of the CFHL, UC and EFNEP Joint Curriculum Committee and the CFHL, UC Evaluation Task Force.  The following document describes the 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.

Intergenerational Curricula Materials and Resources

Intergenerational collaboration has the potential to unite and improve communities through authentic engagement between youth, adults and older adults. Supporting the “school as a hub model” of service delivery, intergenerational activities further promote healthy lifestyle messaging across generations.

 Recommended Evaluation Tools and SMART ObjectivesSmart Objectives

SMART is a mnemonic which stands for Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Time. It is a way of developing specific goals for a project. Each of the CalFresh Healthy Living, University of California program's curricula have a specific set of SMART objectives. Ideally, participants taught with each curriculum will achieve the goals listed in that curriculum's SMART objective. A listing of adult, family-centered and youth curricula, youth engagement approaches, and PSE strategies is included in the file below with the recommended evaluation tool. Please use this resource in combination with the Evaluation Changes summary also included below.
