Whew! I feel like I have been out of touch for some time. After six-seven
months of remarkable family "challenges," I'm getting back to my desk and
the work I love to do. It was my pleasure to teach three college courses
this summer. My WWU class included all special education majors, who always
have a special perspective on health. I also taught a day and evening
cohort at Antioch, and Antioch students have a special perspective, too.
Both groups had interest in nutrition, and they wanted to find food guide
pyramids that met the needs of different students and clients. I've used
one web site for some time. The USDA offers a variety of food guide
pyramids from other organizations -
And one of my Antioch students shared this site from Georgia State
http://monarch.gsu.edu/nutrition/ The Nutrition Education for New
Americans Project is a program in the Department of Anthropology and
Geography at Georgia State University. It is sponsored by USDA to assist low
income immigrants to learn about healthy eating practices. Using USDA food
pyramid as the focus, materials and programs are designed to include both
traditional foods as well as American foods.
Are there other food guide pyramid sites or resources you use? I know I've
seen posters and color print copies of pyramids, but I don't remember where!
