Systematic Approach To Food Safety Education On The Farm, Angela Shaw, Catherine Strohbehn, Linda Naeve

Food Science and Human Nutrition Publications

Food safety education from farm to end user is essential in the mitigation of food safety concerns associated with fresh produce. Iowa State University developed a multi-disciplinary three-level sequential program ("Know," "Show," "Go") to provide a holistic approach to food safety education. This program provides knowledge on GAP (Know); guides development and documentation of food safety practices (Show); and aids in grower's readiness for third party auditing (Go). Evaluations suggest this program is effective in changing long term food safety knowledge, attitude, and behaviors. The multi-disciplinary sequential approach can be used by other Extension programs to reach.

Following training, respondents reported being more likely to use or recommend use of local anesthesia for dehorning and castration and were more inclined to use meloxicam for pain management. Respondents also reported improvement in performing all skills taught in the workshop. These results suggest instructional techniques used to teach practical concepts/techniques relevant to beef cattle welfare led to improvements in both perceived competency and estimated likelihood that the material will be ...

The Effectiveness Of An Online Community Of Practice As An Intervention For Childhood Obesity, Casey Deboer

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

A significant portion of the children in the United States do not reach the recommended amount of physical activity (PA) each day. Childhood obesity and a sedentary lifestyle are associated with a cycle of deficits to physical and psychological health that continue throughout the lifetime. Schools are ideal locations for improvement, and implementing programs that include PA in the classroom is one promising solution; however, teachers are not provided with adequate support to apply this strategy. It is imperative that effective ways to increase teachers’ inclinations to incorporate PA be found. The purpose of this research was to examine the ...

Associations Between The Family Nutrition And Physical Activity Screening Tool And The Youth Activity Profile, Kimberly Ann Klimesh

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Childhood obesity affects one third of children and adolescents and is expected to increase in coming years. Obesity has been linked to both genetic and environmental factors with more recent research focusing on the role parents play in childhood obesity. The Family Nutrition and Physical Activity (FNPA) Screening tool was developed to provide practical ways to evaluate home obesogenic environments. However, no study to date has examined associations between FNPA scores and child behaviors. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine associations between FNPA scores from parents and child reported lifestyle behaviors as assessed by an established self-report ...
