At first glance, it may seem as though nutrition education is completely counter to the spirit of mindful eating. Traditional perceptions may conjure up thoughts of calorie prescriptions, exchange lists, food labels, and portion size guides, none of which are consistent with a mindfulness-based approach to making food decisions.
At the same time, nutrition does influence health and diet can play a key role in managing many health conditions. So, as health professionals who care about supporting and helping to improve the health and well-being of clients, who also embrace mindful eating, how does nutrition education fit into your work?
In part 1 of this two-part webinar series will explore how the role of food and the definition of nutrition change when viewed through the lens of mindful eating and how to provide nutrition education in a way that is also consistent with the spirit of mindful eating.
Part 2 of this two-part webinar series will explore practical strategies for providing mindfulness-inspired nutrition education to specific populations, such as those with chronic health conditions, food intolerances and allergies, and a history of disordered eating or eating disorders.
- Compare and contrast more traditional perceptions of nutrition and nutrition education with those inspired by mindful eating.
- Identify nutrition education tools and strategies that support changes in eating behavior while also being consistent with the spirit of mindful eating.
- Describe useful strategies for providing mindfulness-inspired nutrition education to specific populations, such as those with chronic health conditions, food intolerances and allergies, and a history of disordered eating or eating disorders.
