The team at the Prevention Research Center on Nutrition and Physical Activity is excited to announce the newly refreshed OSNAP.org, a site dedicated to sharing resources for creating healthier out-of-school time spaces for kids.
The Out-of-School Nutrition and Physical Activity Initiative (OSNAP) is an evidence-based initiative that helps out-of-school time programs improve policies and practices to help kids move more and eat healthier snacks. OSNAP focuses on six nutrition and physical activity goals and provides training, tools, and resources to help programs make sustainable changes to promote increased physical activity and consumption of healthy snacks.
This past summer, the team at the Prevention Research Center on Nutrition and Physical Activity at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health refreshed the look, feel, and functionality of the OSNAP website to better support afterschool leaders who are looking for resources and training materials to assess and improve the quality of their programs. The site houses OSNAP resources and curriculum and this revamp will make it easier for users to find the resources they need to promote healthy behaviors for kids in afterschool programs. The new site’s Resource Library includes tip sheets, training materials, and more.
