While Nutrition Instructors do not need to be registered dietitians, you must have a strong background in nutrition, food science, dietetics, or a related field. The Nutrition Instructor will lead class discussions on basic healthy eating, following the MyPlate methodology. Topics include planning balanced meals, eating more fruits and vegetables, the benefits of whole grains, reading labels, and appropriate serving sizes. Meal planning and budgeting is also a critical piece of the course. We will provide the curriculum and suggested activities, but we strongly encourage you to bring your own ideas and thoughts to the class.
