R11: Quality of Life

Changes in population behaviors that reflect achievement of improved quality of life.

R10: Family Meals

Changes in frequency of family meals at the population level that reflect the cumulative effects of achieving short-, medium-, and long-term outcomes in other indicators.

R9: Healthy Weight

This indicator measures change in the condition of being at a healthy weight, neither underweight nor overweight or obese, over time, from year to year of the low-income population of the state. R9 is intended to measure the proportion of the SNAP-Ed eligible population that is achieving the CDC recommendation. R9 is a population-level surveillance measure.

R8: Breastfeeding

The proportion of the SNAP-Ed eligible infants that were ever breastfed, fully breastfed, or partially breastfed.

R6: Food Security

This indicator represents changes in food security status, when SNAP-Ed eligible persons have access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.

R5: Beverages

This indicator represents change in water and unhealthy beverage consumption and/or over-consumption of 100 percent fruit juice by youth over time, from year to year, of the low-income population of the state. Unlike MT1 and LT1 (Healthy Eating Behaviors), which measure increases in water intake and decreases in sugar-sweetened beverage intake attributed to SNAP-Ed series-based programs, R5 is intended to measure the proportion of the SNAP-Ed eligible population that is achieving the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015 recommendations. Thus, R5 measures water and sugar-sweetened beverage consumption status for low-income households surveyed within the state or area of focus. R5 is a population-level surveillance measure.

R4: Dairy

This indicator represents change in dairy product consumption and/or adequacy of consumption over time, from year to year, of the low-income population of the state. Unlike MT1 and LT1 (Healthy Eating Behaviors), which measure increases in low-fat/fat-free dairy consumption attributed to SNAP-Ed series-based programs, R4 is intended to measure the proportion of the SNAP-Ed eligible population that is achieving the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015 recommendations. Thus, R4 measures dairy consumption status for low-income households surveyed within the state or area of focus. R4 is a population-level surveillance measure.

R3: Whole Grains

This indicator represents whole grains consumption over time, from year to year, of the SNAP-Ed eligible population of the state or project area. Unlike MT1 and LT1 (Healthy Eating Behaviors), which measure frequency of grains consumption attributed to SNAP-Ed series-based programs, R3 is intended to measure the proportion of the SNAP-Ed eligible population that is achieving the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015 recommendations. Thus, R3 measures whole grains status for low-income households surveyed within the state or area of focus. R3 is a population-level surveillance measure.

R2: Fruits & Vegetables*

This indicator represents changes in fruit and vegetable consumption, including subgroups of under-consumed vegetables, over time, from year to year, among the low-income population of the state. Unlike MT1 and LT1 (Healthy Eating Behaviors), which measure increases in fruit and vegetable intake attributed to SNAP-Ed series-based programs, R2 is intended to measure the proportion of the SNAP-Ed eligible population that is achieving the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015 recommendations. Thus, R2 measures fruit and vegetable consumption status for low-income households surveyed within the state or area of focus. R2 is a population-level surveillance measure.
