LHD Evaluation

Welcome, Local Health Departments! This page will help you find information for each of the CalFresh Healthy Living evaluation projects coordinated by Nutrition Policy Institute.

 

Healthy Default Beverage Project (HDB) 

NPI evaluation staff have worked with LHDs in 10 counties to identify opportunities to increase consumption of milk and water among children in conjunction with new legislation promoting healthy beverages to be included in kids' meals. Implementation of this project is on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
