Welcome Back Graduates!!!
Thirteen past graduates of the Cent$ible Nutrition Program returned for class in December, a class reunion. They had a great time sharing with each other something they had learned from taking the CNP classes and the changes they have made. One participant stated that she now eat breakfast and feels like she has more energy throughout the morning! Another participant has cut back on deep fried food; while another now eats more vegetables by including them in her lunches and dinners.

Our program was featured in the 2012 national impact report for the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP). This annual report shares the national cumulative impacts of research-based low-income nutrition education efforts through land-grant universities in all states and territories. It represents work with 130,485 adults and 479,398 youth through series-based, hands-on nutrition programming. Each year a few narrative success stories are featured and this year a story from a Wyoming participant was included:
|A legally blind married couple saved $200 a month by cooking at home and avoiding processed foods and take out. Both learned basic cooking skills and basic nutrition through the exceptional instruction of the EFNEP paraprofessional. The couple purchased an electric skillet with a Braille control knob to continue making the recipes they learned. They make eggs for breakfast instead of eating packaged breakfast bars and homemade stew is their new favorite dish. — Wyoming EFNEP|
