Researchers with ISU Extension and Outreach recently published findings from a two-year study regarding Iowa’s Latino immigrant families’ ability to understand their new food environments and children’s eating practices.

“We’re connecting with Latina immigrant mothers to learn what is important to them and what they want for their families, and then applying that knowledge and adapting resources to meet their needs,” said extension specialist Kimberly Greder. The study is continuing in 2013-2014.
