Youth nutrition education program effort draws UW Extension honor

Cent$ible Nutrition Program (CNP) educators who updated and expanded a curriculum implemented in elementary schools across the state have received the organization’s Community Impact Award.

The educators helped incorporate new materials and activities into the curriculum and trained other educators on the program. Grazing with Marty Moose is the program’s curriculum for second and third graders. The honor was presented during University of Wyoming Extension’s training conference in December on the Laramie campus.

Educators and their home counties are Marilou Vaughn, Fremont; Krista Brown and Michelle Hans, Natrona; and Beth Barker, Uinta.

CNP director Mindy Meuli says the curriculum was updated in 2016 and implemented last year.

“Without the hard work and creative ideas of this group, this new Marty Moose program would not have been possible,” she says.
