In addition to our AgriLife Extension programs, members of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Food and Nutrition Unit developed online courses, Facebook pages, YouTube videos, and informational graphics (infographics) to reach nontraditional audiences. Online courses offer convenience for clients seeking required professional development opportunities. Professional development courses for food service workers, nutrition educators, and childcare givers were developed.
