During 2017, the Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics will be highlighting our members and what they do as the ‘Nutrition Experts’ for our great state of Idaho. Today we are recognizing:
Steffanie Sandoval, RD, LD
Program Coordinator for the University of Idaho Extension Program – Eat Smart Idaho in Southern Idaho (District II)
The University of Idaho Extension Program – Eat Smart Idaho is a program that offers nutrition education to limited resource individuals who qualify for food assistance programs like SNAP and WIC. Steffanie’s role includes assisting and supporting nutrition advisors, coordinating direct education activities, as well as building and maintaining agency partnerships.
Through Eat Smart Idaho, individuals and families learn how to utilize and stretch their food dollars to purchase healthful and nutritious foods through planning, budgeting, and identifying low cost food options. The program also encourages youth to think about the foods they eat and find healthier food options for more nutrition as they grow.
