Educational Modules in Development

  • Dr. Jennifer Savage Williams, CCOR
  • Module development funded by USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) through the PA Department of Human Services (DHS). This institution is an equal opportunity provider

The goal of this project is to develop, administer and evaluate a series of online nutrition educational modules for low-income mothers in central PA to promote responsive feeding and the development of healthy dietary behaviors and growth patterns among infants and toddlers from families enrolled in WIC and Head Start. We have three "Toddler Modules" and three "Infant Modules" in development. See below for more details:

  • I Can Do it Myself! Moving to Finger Foods (Transition to Solids II): Covers topics related to transitioning to finger foods, including what foods to offer, how to prepare finger foods, and tips for preventing picky eating.
