Programs offered by UW Extension N&FS educators include the following:


Nutrition Programming

Two Extension programs are offered to adults and youth in Wyoming to address health and nutrition issues. Each of these programs, Cent$ible Nutrition Program (CNP) and Nutrition & Food Safety (NFS), stands alone, although each enhances the other resulting in stronger impacts. Neither program can replace the services provided by the other due to educational qualifications of staff, grant restrictions for participant eligibility, and specified curriculum content. If funding ceased for one of the two programs, the other program could not provide those services and, in effect, those services would be lost.
