Fight Information Overload

Your students, employees, and clients are bombarded with information everywhere they go. Sadly, many of the nutrition and health education messages we teach get tuned out or lost in information overload. One way to get your information tuned in, not out, is to use short, to-the-point messages that will catch and keep people’s attention. We have lots of posters that do this, but here are a few of my favorites:
  1. Three Steps to Mindful Eating touches on the basics of eating more mindfully, like eating only when you’re hungry, slowing down, and savoring the food.
  2. Nutrition at a Glance hits on each component of healthy eating by taking a big picture look at macronutrients, vitamins and minerals, and processed food.
  3. Two Tools highlights how using MyPlate and the nutrition facts label can help you shop for, plan, and prepare healthy meals.
  4. Healthier Choices 1, 2, 3 promotes three simple switches that can make a big impact on fighting childhood and adult obesity.
To break through information overload, you can't go wrong with catching people’s attention and then keeping things simple. Hollis Bass, MEd, RD, LD
