Thirteenth Annual Lenna Frances Cooper Memorial Lecture: Nutrition education-what comes next?


Education for normal nutrition must include preventive measures against the principal health problems of the day, namely cardiovascular and gastrointestinal diseases. Preventive nutrition denotes a sufficiency of all nutrients for normal metabolic processes and the avoidance of excesses of calories, salurated fat, cholesterol, simple carbohydrates, and refined foods. The dietitian is uniquely qualified to interpret nutritional science and to apply it to daily food choices by people and must assume leadership in all program development for nutrition education, including nutrition education programs in the nation's schools. For effective, preventive nutrition education, new perspectives are needed to overcome the limitations of the simplistic, traditional approach.
