Expanding 4-H Nutrition Education Through a Team Approach.
Kirby, Edwin L.
The various ways of expanding the 4-H nutrition education program through team work are discussed. The need is stressed to consider "balance" in the 4-H nutrition efforts, regardless of income levels, race, color, sex, or national origin. The primary objectives of the Expanded Food Nutrition Education Program is to help hard-to-reach families acquire the knowledge, skills, and changed behavior necessary to achieve a more balanced diet. The Extension aide may serve as a resource person to teach food-nutrition subject matter to low income, disadvantaged youth in 4-H and other youth groups; help identify and recruit volunteers to work with youth; assist with training volunteers; and serve as a liaison between the volunteer, extension staff and community resources. If the aide is to function as a link in serving low income families, it is only realistic that the home economist and the 4-H staff share some joint responsibilities in the initial training of aides and their continuous in-service and consultation training.
