UW-Extension's nutrition education program has been awesome for my 1st grade class. We received so many positive comments during parent-teacher conferences. One family stated that they now eat whole wheat bread because their daughter tried it in our class. Thanks Ms. Evelyn!!

4-H taught me a lot about leadership. I became club president and later became FFA and Green Lake County FB president. The interstate exchange and Washington, D.C. trips were my first times leaving the state and were real eye-openers to the rest of world.

4-H has been a life-changing organization for me. As a teen, 4-H was an inclusive leadership experience that taught me life skills like planning, organization, public speaking and collaboration. As an adult, I sought 4-H for my children to instill skills and belonging they don't find elsewhere.

Before starting this program, I always tried to make healthy choices. Thanks to this program, I am more aware of what I'm buying. I make sure to pack and prepare a more balanced meal; plus, making a grocery list has helped me budget and save! Thank you!

I really enjoyed the Eating Smart Being Active Program through UW-Extension. It gave me the kickstart I needed. I eliminated soda and started paying attention to what I was eating. I lost 16 lbs. during the program!
