Faithful Families Eating Smart and Moving More

Faithful Families Eating Smart and Moving More is a practice-tested health promotion intervention that promotes healthy eating and physical activity in communities of faith.

The Faithful Families curriculum is co-taught by nutrition and physical activity educators and trained lay leaders from faith communities in small group sessions. Lay Leaders bring the spiritual elements into each session, through discussion questions and “Thinking it Through” prompts in each lesson. Faithful Families can be used by any faith community.
