Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lisa G Brown, BS, RD, LD, CDE (College of Saint Benedict)
Description: This book presents a procedural model that takes behavioral theory and translates it into practical ways to implement nutrition education. The second edition updates research findings and implements revised case studies and worksheets based on feedback from the first edition.
Purpose: The book combines education strategies and environmental supports to improve nutrition through changes in behaviors. It addresses key theories used to implement practical nutrition education activities. The book would be helpful to those developing nutrition education programs. The author illustrates her points with case studies to reinforce key concepts.
Audience: "According to the author, the book is designed for upper division and graduate nutrition students and those professionals already working in the field of nutrition education. It is not an introductory nutrition education textbook, rather it focuses on how to design and evaluate nutrition interventions and programs. The author has done extensive research in the area and has prepared a book with learning objectives, examples, flowcharts, case studies, review questions, and references in each chapter. "
Features: This procedural model provides guidance through the process of developing, implementing, and evaluating a nutrition education program. The book explains how to review the theories of education, how to translate them into education, and how to evaluate them. It includes case studies and flow charts, along with review questions to reinforce learning.
Assessment: This book has well documented research with well laid out education theories. The usefulness of the book is limited to advance degree nutrition professionals who have a background understanding of the science of nutrition and are challenged to implement a nutrition education program.
