CBH is a comprehensive nutrition curriculum designed to teach adult SNAP-Ed participants how to eat well and be active on a budget. CBH was developed and evaluated by a team of SNAP-Ed program specialists, registered dietitians, and Utah State University Extension nutrition faculty.

CBH combines nutrition and physical activity recommendations from United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Based in social cognitive theory, the goal of the curriculum is to teach participants the knowledge and cooking skills necessary to lead an active and healthy life on limited resources.

Each lesson has three components: a nutrition topic based on the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans, a physical activity discussion based on the 2018 Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, and a Create recipe demonstration and sample. The components are woven together in eight lessons that are designed to keep participants engaged, while actively learning the skills needed to create a healthier lifestyle.
