Curriculum Approval Process and Curriculum Fidelity

UC CalFresh and EFNEP have updated the protocol for the Nutrition Education Programs to request approval to use new curricula. The protocol was conceived between members of the Curriculum Committees and the UC CalFresh Evaluation Task Force. Curriculum Approval Process

In SNAP-Ed, use of evidence-based curricula helps us provide the most effective nutrition education interventions. Following the curricula as it is written ensures the quality of the interventions, however, sometimes a specific curriculum may not fit the needs of a given group of SNAP-Ed clients. The following tools are designed to help guide Local Implementing Agencies regarding acceptable levels of modifications. In addition there are tools to strengthen curriculum delivery.

Evidence Based Summaries

The USDA requires that SNAP-Ed Programs implement evidence-based approaches. The UC CalFresh Nutrition Education Program uses many curricula that were developed by the University of California. Evidence Based Summaries were developed for these curricula to document their evidence-based effectiveness in encouraging behavior change in participant's food, beverage and physical activity choices. NCOR Toolkit

Each of the UC CalFresh 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.
