Maryland SNAP Ed Program offers these tips for eating healthy and staying active while at home.

The Maryland SNAP Ed Program provides nutrition education to help low-income individuals and families make healthy food choices, develop food preparation skills, handle food safely, improve shopping skills, and increase physical activity.

The Maryland SNAP Ed Program also provides nutrition education training to volunteers and professionals who provide services to low-income families, thus expanding the reach of the program.

Core Nutrition Messages:

  • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables
  • Make half your grains whole
  • Drink water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages
  • Switch to low-fat or non-fat milk and dairy foods
  • Eat lean proteins – beans, nuts, seeds, peanut/almond butters, eggs and fish
  • Cut back on foods high in solid fat, added sugars and salt
  • Encourage child feeding practices that foster healthy eating habits

The Maryland SNAP Ed Program collaborates with community agencies to provide nutrition education programs to low-income families and individuals.
