Healthier Troops in a SNAP (Scouting Nutrition & Physical Activity Program) is a health promotion program that is delivered by Girl Scout troop leaders. The program was designed to help with efforts to prevent obesity and improve the health of Girl Scouts and their families by promoting physical activity and healthful eating. It involves the creation of fruit and vegetable snacks, fun physical activities that can be done in meetings and at home with parents, and a supporting educational curriculum with badge-related homework activities. Along with physical activity and healthy eating, this program focuses on the importance of family meals, limiting television time, and choosing water over soda.
