A re-designed Eat Smart Idaho webpage will be coming soon.


Eat Smart Idaho is Idaho’s Nutrition Education Program to help adults and families learn how to stretch their food dollars to provide tasty, low-cost, healthy meals for their families. Nutrition Advisors teach group classes and one-on-one lessons to adults and children. The lessons cover basic nutrition, physical activity, stretching the food dollar, food resource management, and food safety.

Eat Smart Idaho is funded by two Federal grants, allowing University of Idaho Extension to deliver classes specifically for those with limited resources. These grants are provided by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service in cooperation with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and by USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture.
