FRIDGE - 2nd Edition is now online.

Posted: January 2, 2014

We are pleased to report that the 2nd edition of the FRIDGE curriculum (2013) is now available online. The current html format is far more user-friendly than the old, large pdf file previously posted on the FRIDGE webpage. Other changes to the curriculum include: updated resources and references (mostly to reflect the latest Food Guidance System - from MyPyramid to MyPlate), streamlined activity instructions, handouts with improved graphics and larger text, and strategies for conducting the program in other settings such as farms and residential camps.

FRIDGE is a Penn State curriculum designed to help families have food-related conversations that are non-adversarial and that honor children as “partners” in making positive food-related behavior changes. The simple goal is to make family communication about food easier, more fun, and more effective for family members of all ages. Originally developed in 2007, FRIDGE was approved as a national SNAP-Ed curriculum and received the 2010 American Dietetic Association Program of Excellence Award.
