We talked about a lot of different programs with health first network and Suzanne plot check. During this time talking about food families and for families, ties in with the WIC program which makes sense because you're with dietitian and you soon taking over the WIC program here correct. Yes. So the for families program is a program that we do in conjunction with the WIC program it's geared towards 2 to 4-year-old children and potentially their families. The program is one that focuses on childhood obesity and preventing childhood obesity. So what the program does is families choose a goal, something that they want to work on and then we help them achieve that goal. Over the 13 month time. So how do you do that the families to the goal that they like to work on it could be something from decreasing screen time, increasing physical activity increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables they consume in a day or changing the beverages that they drink we set a goal with them and then work with them on a monthly basis by either texting, calling or emailing them and checking in with them to see how their goal is going and then giving them tips and suggestions on how they can better achieve that goal they mentioned was 13 months why 13 months rather than like six or 12 or you know that the typical time link that usually think of something going sir. So we collected starting data we get BMI from the family and then we ask some of the questions regarding how much screen time how much fruits and vegetables they consume and then we wait, that full year to make sure that you know we've captured all the data we can and then we re-ask the same questions at the 13 month mark to see what changes they made, or if there's been improvements in certain areas with use of the data for the state that family program analyzes that data they have a separate team that analyzes it and then they send back reports annually that tells each program how they've done in terms of improving the fruit and vegetable consumption in children or decreasing screen time
