A public nutrition program most consist of good caloric intake, weight management an adequate physical activities. This will have to be ingrained in our youth as many of them have already been diagnosed with obesity(Edelman.)As nurses, we see this trend in our communities. This trend is a result of unhealthy and poor dietary intake causing these them to be obese. Obesity is not the only issue as they are malnourished as well(Edelman.). The health of these youth will impact health care since put them at risk for many preventable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The youth have access to vending machines and home filled with an abundance of unhealthy snacks. They are bombarded commercial with deals they can’t pass. Almost every fast food chain has a deal for five dollars or less with very little nutritional value. The most healthier options are more costly.The multidisciplinary approach to nutrition education. The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed), formerly known as Food Stamp Nutrition Education (FSNE), are two federal/state partnerships that support nutrition education for the improved health of limited-resource audiences. This program can only work if the communities know that they are in exitance. These programs have peer-educator which uses interactive teaching model. This makes the education more relevant and will also assist with the cultural aspect. (EFNEP). The nutrition program is only as effective as the persons’ willingness to understand the relationship between their diet and its direct impact on their health. Nursing cannot only be a one discipline to educate but along with educator’s, nutritionist and we can reduce these growing number of the malnourished in the United States Spector(2004).
