Penn State University (PSU) with the support of Hamilton Health Center (HHC) will be providing educational instruction through the use of the About Eating Curriculum to women who receive services through the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program at the HHC site location in Harrisburg, Pa.
The Hamilton Health Center project will adapt About Eating to target low-income women. About Eating is a multi-lesson web-based module that
- encourages learners to address food acceptance
- teaches dietary variety and energy balance including self-awareness of hunger and fullness
- changes attitudes toward eating healthy, being physically active, and focusing on meals
- focuses on food purchase, selection and budget management issues.
This is the only online module that encompasses all constructs in the eating competence model.
