and Nutrition Division has developed two free online
nutrition education resources through the State of Nevada Online
Professional Development Center.
General Nutrition Education Course
This course is intended to help the
public gain more information on nutrition topics for all age groups. In today’s
busy world, combing through all of the available nutrition information isn’t
always easy. This resource includes the most up-to-date nutrition information
from the USDA. Some small changes in you and your family’s eating and physical
activity habits can make a huge difference and add up to real results.
For specific or individualized
nutrition information, Registered Dietitians and your physician are your best
resources. General nutrition guidelines are intended only as starting points
for healthy people and should be used solely as a reference, especially for
people with medical conditions or while taking prescription medications.
Wellness Training Web Course
This course is intended to provide
information on the current guidelines for nutrition and physical activity
education in schools.
There are seven wellness modules
that outline the basic nutrition and physical activity
guidelines to promote healthy behaviors for students.
This course was developed for teachers,
parents, food service workers, nurses, registered dietitians, and the general
public to provide basic nutrition and physical activity information on best
practices for improving dietary and physical activity behaviors for students.
Free continuing education credits are available for this course for Registered
Dietitians and Nevada Teachers.
