“Next Steps to Better Nutrition” Program for Older Adults
The Next Steps to Better Nutrition program was developed by the National Council on Aging and the American Heart Association to teach older adults about better nutrition. The program focuses on the relationship between nutrition and chronic disease.
The program consists of a 6 hour-long modules. The modules cover how older adults can afford, purchase, and cook more nutritious foods. Participants discover how they can take concrete action steps to improve their diet and keep their heart healthy. Each module includes related teaching materials, video presentations, facilitator scripts, and handouts. Most handouts include Spanish versions.
These training modules can be used to deliver nutrition education in senior centers and other community organizations.
