Plan, Shop, Save & Cook:
In the Plan, Shop, Save & Cook (PSSC) lessons you will learn how to: Plan meals for your family and write shopping lists to save money and time; Learn to choose foods that are the most nutritious and that fit within your budget; Learn techniques to lower your food bill and stretch your money; Learn how to use unit pricing and review bulk and generic products; and How to keep your food safe to prevent waste and spoilage. You will also learn tips to help you plan nutritious meals for an entire week and taste a healthy low-cost recipe.
This curriculum was developed by University of California CalFresh Nutrition Education program.
The Eat Smart, Live Strong (ESLS) lessons promote two key behaviors: increase fruit and vegetable consumption to 3 1/2 cups per day (1 1/2 cups of fruits and 2 cups of vegetables), and participate in at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. These lessons are geared towards 60-74 year olds participating in or eligible for FNS nutrition assistance programs.
The new ESLS Activity Kit materials are available to download at the USDA SNAP-Ed Connection website.
