PEPS Students Take Part in Hands-On Nutrition Education

Grocery shopping may seem like a simple task, but for a teenager, it can be a bit daunting. Especially if they’re shopping for a family. That’s why Partners Educating Parenting Students (PEPS) teacher Tania Wilhelmi paired up with UW-Extension to give her students a hands-on, interactive and educational experience inside the grocery store.

“This program is geared toward my students who are all teenage moms. We’re focusing on healthy eating for them and healthy eating for their children and learning budgeting strategies with a WIC focus,” Wilhelmi explained.
