    Physical Activity and Nutrition Resource Kit for NM Schools and Communities

    The New Mexico Healthier Weight Council (HWC) Education Systems Advisory Group is pleased to announce the release of a new tool, "Physical Activity and Nutrition Resource Kit for New Mexico Schools and Communities." This resource kit was developed by a collaborative group of public and private partners working together to improve the health and quality of life for New Mexicans.

    The Resource Kit:

    • Provides a list of the nutrition education and physical education activity programs and curricula (elementary and secondary audiences) that are known to or used by HWC members.
    • Provides an evaluation tool that can be used to help determine if a program is appropriate for particular needs.
    • Provides definitions of Evidence-Based Practice, Best Practice, and Promising Approach to help users understand terms when clairms are made

    The resource kit is not all-inclusive. There are many other worthwwhile programs that might fit particular needs. It is not an endorsement of any one program but rather a resource to help schools and communities select a program.
