When you need to look your very best now...
Learning objectives & benefits:
- 2005 Show (50 slides): This show represents the first version of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The guidelines from this year were very detailed and many graphics which appear as report cards are given. It is valuable as a standalone show or as a slide bank for your library!
- Long Dietary Guidelines 2010 show: Individuals will see a summary of the entire report from the 2010 Dietary Guidelines (70+ slides):
- What are the guidelines and why do we have them?
- Balancing calories to manage weight
- Foods to reduce
- Foods to increase
- Healthy eating patterns
- Healthy choices
- Express show: Individuals will learn the key recommendations for the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (40 slides):
- SoFAS - Solid Fats and Added Sugars
- Sodium - How to lower daily sodium intake to meet new recommendations
- Be Active - Fit more exercise and activity into the day and reduce screen time
- Fiber - Outlines the importance of a high-fiber diet, including fruits, veggies, whole grains and legumes.
Don't read over 600 pages from the summary and 112 pages of the actual guidelines, let us do the work and boil them down to the 4 most important take home lessons that every consumer needs for better health.
- BONUS - receive the handout "The 23 things we learned from the Dietary Guidelines Committee recommendations.
- Be up to date on the most important nutrition research from the past 5 years since the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
- Nutrition is a complicated science that is evolving and your customers are often more educated by the media and advertising.
Today's consumer needs constant reminders and many lessons.
- This report card style approach is very effective - not only do they learn the importance of plant-based, high-fiber, minimally-processed meals, but they need to visually see "what" they are overdoing.
- Who ever knew they were eating almost a half day's supply of SoFAS?
- The funny cartoon that we have for SoFAS is not just for kids, it is for adults to bring a light hearted lesson that will not be forgotten.
- This is great for all audiences from low literate to the most sophisticated boardroom exec who needs a lesson and a laugh.
Add the "Dietary Guidelines Poster Set" to your lesson!
What is the difference between MyPlate and Dietary Guidelines education materials?
MyPlate education materials offer a good visual of what you need in your diet and on your plate to get adequate nutrients in calories allotted.
- Recommendations are based on the food groups in MyPlate. We believe this is a great approach and visual lesson for general audiences and children that need basic nutrition information.
Dietary Guidelines education materials offer a comprehensive review of what today's consumers need for a healthier diet.
- It is a report card approach for "what we are doing now and where we need to go from here" based on the best science.
- For example, the Dietary Guidelines explain how individuals need to limit sugar and they show that 50% of the sugar most people eat comes from beverages.
- They explain that you need to eat more dark green and orange vegetables.
- And you need to cut sodium in half based on what most people are eating
- They remind everyone to eat fewer refined grains and more whole grains.
- We believe these are very comprehensive and the golden standard for a healthy diet.
- The exercise information is also more comprehensive here.
- The Dietary Guidelines is a comprehensive program that can be used for multiple classes and a more educated audience.
What is the difference between the 2005 and 2010 Dietary Guidelines?
MyPyramid was introduced in 2005 and this was the year of the report card which summarized what we should be doing and what we are doing.
Underconsumption items such as fruits and veggies, exercise and whole grains were emphasized.
Overconsumption items such as sugar, refined grains and saturated fat were shown
- and the benefits of exercise plus recommendations for amounts based on science are outlined
2010 brings another report card and tighter recommendations along with the MyPlate icon.
- The actual committee report is over 600 pages and the Dietary Guidelines 2010 Summary is 112 pages.
- While the 2010 reports validate the 2005 claims, it sets out to address obesity and to lower sodium recommendations.
- Sodium is lowered to 1500 mg per person for half the population with 2300 being the upper intake for everyone else.
- The 2010 Dietary Guidelines emphasize high-fiber, high-nutrient foods and brings a new acronym called SoFAS or Solid Fats and Added Sugars.
- Many people eat 1/3 or 1/2 of their calories each day from the SoFAS category. Together these two shows from 2005 and 2010 can help you bring the science to everyone's table along with the report cards that are very practical for today's busy consumer.
- The 2008 Physical Guidelines are presented and they help everyone realize it doesn't take much you just have to get moving for 2.5 hours per week.
- You can break these down into great lunch and learn topics
- The Dietary Guidelines Committee is made up of credentialed scientists who compile and summarize the latest peer-reviewed research so Americans can benefit from their unbiased expertise for analyzing 5 years worth of nutrition research. (The Dietary Guidelines are updated every 5 years.)
