The husky byte program

Pierce, Michelle B., Kerrian A. Hudson, Karina R. Lora, Erin K. Havens, Ann M. Ferris, (2011) The husky byte program: Delivering Nutrition Education One Sound Byte at a Time Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior 43(2), pp.135-136

“As food gatekeepers, parents have the opportunity to establish healthful eating patterns for their children. Nutrition education efforts directed toward parents will therefore have the most impact on family foodways. However, parents often have difficulty attending the traditional mode of education, nutrition classes, because of lack of child care, transportation, time, or motivation.3 At the University of Connecticut, the authors responded to this problem by creating the Husky Byte program, designed to deliver short, unambiguous nutrition education messages. This innovative program considers time constraints, employs principles of adult learning theory, and is easily accessible to adults in community settings.” (p.135)


About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
