Who Delivers SNAP-Ed in New Mexico?
The Child Health Initiative for Lifelong Eating and Exercise (CHILE) Plus program is the dissemination of the original CHILE intervention. CHILE Plus continues as an evidence-based, multidisciplinary nutrition education and obesity prevention program among American Indian and Hispanic children enrolled in Head Start programs across rural New Mexico. CHILE Plus is behaviorally-focused and is based on the socioecological model.
