From Theory to table: Spotlight on Culinary Nutrition Interventions

BUY ITEM | $ 24.95

Physicians, chefs and health professionals are cooking up culinary nutrition interventions across North America. As food and nutrition experts, dietitians are well-positioned to be leaders in this emerging practice area, blending together evidence-based nutrition alongside food skills training. In this session, we will showcase how to communicate core food and nutrition messages using a culinary nutrition approach. This unique conference opportunity will leverage skills and training inherent to dietetic practice, and help dietitians conceive of their clinical expertise within an emerging culinary nutrition framework.

Dietitians will leave this session able to:

  • State the value of culinary nutrition interventions in dietary behavior change
  • Articulate the case for why dietitians are best positioned to deliver these interventions.
  • List three practical strategies for designing and implementing culinary nutrition interventions in day to day practice.

Now is the time for dietitians to harvest existing practice tools, and gain the experience needed to deliver impactful culinary nutrition interventions.
