From the article:
“We are trying to reach parents using Pinterest, specifically moms,” said Ashley Fondren, a nutrition education coordinator at Mississippi State University. “According to a Pinterest Infographic by iQuarius media, 83 percent of American Pinterest users are female with the bulk of them 25 to 54 years old. Recipes and motivational quotes are frequent Pinterest topics so we are reaching out to an audience that wants information to make the healthy behavior changes we promote.”
Donna Shanklin, a regional Extension agent for health from Cullman, Alabama, explains the pinning boards provide ideas to adopt healthier behaviors to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. The six key behaviors on Pinterest are also the focus on the web site http://www.extension.org/families_food_fitness which has additional recipes and tips, frequently asked questions and learning lessons.
