QUICK GUIDES: Assessing Food/Nutrition and Culture

QUICK GUIDES:  Assessing Food/Nutrition and Culture

Quick Guides have been developed for Ecuador, India, Saudi Arabia and the Philippines. More will be added over time, so be sure to check back.

The Quick Guides are designed to help dietitians in assessing food and nutrition history of their patients/clients from a variety of ethnic backgrounds. Relevant areas from the Nutrition Care Process Terminologies (NCPT) are selected to help assess patients with a variety of health conditions such as; cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, overweight/obesity and renal disease. Information regarding commonly consumed foods from different food groups, unique meal practices, use of alternative medicines, treatments/therapies and use of herbs/supplements were gathered with the help of survey responses from dietitians with knowledge in dietary practices from those regions.
