Helping Moms and Kids Make Healthier Food Choices

Maximizing the Message provides background information, a brief summary of the developmental process and research findings, as well as suggestions and tips for putting the core messages into practice. The messages and other resources address important dietary behaviors that influence the health of low-income mothers and children.

We invite you to use the core nutrition messages and supporting content in your nutrition education efforts. Collaborating with other programs in your community to promote the core messages can take this effort to “speak with one voice” one step further.
