Welcome to Nutrition Matters, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist owned business providing educational materials for children, infants, pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Nutrition Matters is your source for easy to read nutrition education materials packed with helpful ideas and guidelines. Provide person centered education with our education materials - use our nutrition education cards for quick counseling sessions, or provide our booklets and tear sheets to clients who ask for more ideas, recipes and suggestions. Individualize education for clients by providing examples of achievable goals along with a variety of meal and snack ideas, mealtime parenting and physical activity ideas.
Nutrition cards, tear sheets, booklets and magnets incorporate concepts from the 2010 US Dietary Guidelines, ChooseMyPlate, WIC and the USDA Infant Nutrition and Feeding Guide for WIC and CSF Programs. Our nutrition education materials have been used in WIC Programs, Head Start Programs, Day Care Centers, Elementary Schools, Cooperative Extension Programs and Community Action Agencies throughout the United States.
Education materials are written by a Registered Dietitian with more than 30 years experience working with families in the WIC and Head Start Programs. The readability level of our nutrition education cards, newsletters and booklets is between fourth to sixth grade (Flesch-Kincaid) or fifth to eighth grade (SMOG).
Nutrition Matters Inc. is the sole source of these nutrition education materials.
