Skills-Based Nutrition Education Institute
Welcome to the Skills-Based Nutrition Education Institute Website!
This site has been prepared for participants of the Skills-Based Nutrition Education Institute that was held in June and August 2012. We hope you find the information on this website helpful as you continue on your journey to deliver skills-based health education with the most up-to-date, relevant, culturally inclusive nutrition content.
Through the menu on the right you will find information organized by skills (Accessing Information, Analyzing Influences, Decision Making and Goal Setting). Within each skill section you will find web resources, session PowerPoints and handouts relevant to teaching that skill. Also, you might notice that certain items are included under more than one skill — this is to demonstrate that much of the content can be "paired" with different skills to allow for flexibility in planning.
The "Skill-Based Resource" page provides a variety of information about skills-based health education in general. This page will assist in answering questions you have about skills-based health education and help you to educate others regarding this approach.
We hope you find this information useful. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
