It’s been said that no food is truly nutritious until it’s actually eaten. Helping clients discover the enjoyment factor in adopting a healthy dietary pattern begins one bite at a time. Because taste is one of the most powerful motivators in getting people to try and continue to consume healthful foods, this continuing education webinar shares creative culinary ideas to add to the nutrition education toolbox.

Research on the most common shortfall nutrients will be reviewed and matched with practical meal pattern ideas to help fill in the gaps. In line with the 2015 US Dietary Guidelines, recipe ideas to help decrease consumption of salt, saturated fat and added sugars will also be addressed.

The live version of this webinar was presented by Carolyn O’Neil, MS, RDN, LD, on Thursday, April 28, 2016, from 2-3 pm ET. This recorded version is approved for one hour of continuing education credit. RDs should list code 175 for this activity type.
