About the Webinar

The Kids Café Program (KCP), sponsored by Feeding America, is a national program that provides snacks and nutrition education for low-income children. Because of the large amount of money that is spent on the program with no available data on its effectiveness, it is important to conduct a formal evaluation. We will present results from a pilot study that aimed to evaluate the impact of the KCP on children’s diet quality (primary outcome), and body mass index (BMI) percentile and self-efficacy (secondary outcomes).
