|Reviewers Comments: ||Bulletin Boards in a SNAP is a series of 8 ready-made bulletin boards focused on nutrition and physical activity topics. Each bulletin board comes complete with referenced background information as well as printable handouts or activities for children and/or parents, graphics, pictures, and text. All files are in the 2007 Microsoft Office Suite of programs or Adobe Acrobat and use 8˝”x 11” or 8˝”x14” paper. Many of the printable items are colorful, therefore a color printer would be preferable. Each bulletin board highlights a specific nutrition or physical activity topic. The components can be used all together as suggested by the overview and sample picture provided for each. They could also be used to supplement materials that educators may have.
Backgrounds for boards are not provided, colored paper or inexpensive fabric could be used to created backgrounds. Educators should ensure that they note the audience to which each bulletin board is targeted as they can vary. Some are targeted toward all ages, some toward only children, and some toward adults. The overview document that comes with each board details the audience. Modifications could easily be made to tailor boards to a variety of audiences.
Recommendations and information included on the bulletin board are consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The series of bulletin boards does contain a small number of recipes, for which nutrition fact labels are not available.
