Texas Nutrition Education and Training Program for Federal Fiscal Year 1996. Final Evaluation Report.
The Texas Nutrition Education and Training Program (NET) provides: (1) workshops to teach children about good eating habits in school and in child care facilities; (2) a circulating NET library collection; (3) instructional and promotional materials on nutrition and food service management; (4) presentations, exhibits, and publications on nutrition education, food service management, and program evaluation; and (5) coordination with related publicly supported programs. This final evaluation report includes data from 1996 evaluations and needs assessments. A study of the Guidelines for Selecting Creditable Foods and Beverages Workshop examined how much the workshop helped participating contractors and program monitors master nutrition related knowledge and how satisfied they were with the training. Evaluation of the 1996 Texas NET found that the program budget decreased slightly from 1995, despite increased numbers of children, and that NET's overall impact was positive. Needs assessment suggests that NET should direct more services to at-risk and minority children. Two appendixes include instruments used to evaluate NET program outreach and to evaluate the Guidelines for Selecting Creditable Foods and Beverages Workshop. (SM)
