Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice is designed to meet the needs of professionals using policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) approaches to increase access to healthy food and physical activity options for low-income individuals and families.
Two self-paced, online courses are available:
- Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice – an in-depth 6-module course that introduces the learner to PSEs and uses an interactive workbook to guide the learner through designing their own PSE approach in their community (learning time approximately 12 hours)
- An Introduction to Policies, Systems, and Environmental Approaches – the first module of the in-depth course which provides both an introduction for those new to PSE approaches and an overview for those with more experience in PSEs (learning time approximately 2 hours)
Both courses are designed for nutrition educators and public health professionals—including those in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)—working collaboratively with local partners to impact local communities.
