Hello! Welcome to Create Better Health Utah (SNAP-ed).
At Create Better Health Utah our goal is simple. We are helping families and individuals obtain the best nutrition with the resources they have. We do this by presenting important nutrition information, demonstrating tasty, low-cost, healthy recipes, and sharing information on staying physically fit. Eat well Utah was started in conjunction with the Utah Food $ense Program. This program is a part of Utah State University Extension and is known nationally as SNAP- Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education).
Food $ense offers free nutrition and cooking classes in many counties throughout the state of Utah. We can be found teaching throughout the state at local Extension offices, in grocery stores, schools, and local farmer’s markets just to name a few. At each class, new recipes are shared and tips on eating well and living a healthy life are taught. To find out more about classes in your county, click here.
