Cultural and Ethnic Food and Nutrition Education Materials:
A Resource List for Educators
This publication is a compilation of educational and background resources for those working
with various ethnic/cultural groups. Background materials provide information about customs
and cultural influences of groups and information on developing multicultural skills. Some
background materials cover the health and nutritional status of groups; however, this is not a
major emphasis of this publication. Also included are articles from professional journals on
educational interventions with various groups. The practical materials, in English and other
languages, cover a wide range of topics including nutrition, food safety, food preparation,
food composition, and food-related terminology. They are geared for use in a variety of
situations including community, school, patient and staff educational settings. Formats
include videos, kits, models, graphics, CD-ROMS, books and booklets, and online
Sources of additional information, including government and educational organizations which
produce items that can be ordered, are listed in the last section.
