Change the conversation when discussing dietary protocol with clients. Instead of educating them on what they need to limit or "can't have" per diagnosis protocol, empower them with foods they CAN eat and healthy cooking techniques that can be utilized at home to prepare flavorful food. Bridge the gap of nutrition education with what clients understand about food.  

Learn how to educate your clients with evidence-based science, but translated through food along with behavior change techniques. Learn how to evaluate clients' cooking skills and confidence in the kitchen to set realistic food-focused behavior change goals.

Learning Objectives

1. Make evidence-based nutrition education relatable to clients through "food talk".  

2. Discuss the impact culinary nutrition programs can have on behavior mediators such as stress, knowledge, confidence, and goal setting.  

3. Identify a variety of culinary nutrition needs and tips related to various disease states.

4. Evaluate clients' cooking skills to work on goal setting accordingly.

The workshop is approved for 7.5 CEUs by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Pending - approval for other health professional education credits.
