This training material is designed to describe key insights and learnings from human-centered design workshops with SNAP-eligible parents and caregivers of young children (0 to 5 years) to learn about how SNAP-Ed could center their needs and desires when developing food retail interventions promoting healthy food choices. The guide provides two intervention frameworks prioritized by caregivers – a meal box intervention and a rewards program. The intervention frameworks were co-created with food retail stakeholders, SNAP-Ed Implementing Agencies, and caregivers using human-centered design methods. Guide developers include the Food, Fitness and Opportunity Research Collaborative (FFORC) and Cooking Matters.
