Food and Nutrition...Basic Lessons for Training Extension Aides.
Federal Extension Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
These lessons were designed to help the trainer agent give aides the background in food and nutrition they will need for their work with low-income families. The 15 basic lessons provide aides with the necessary information to begin the job of helping families improve their diets. During the initial training period, training agents need time to establish effective working relationships with aides as good communications can be vital to the success of the program. Lessons can and should be adapted to train voluntary leaders. Aides must have a broad perspective on food and nutrition before they can begin to do their job. Aides and leaders who complete the basic training course should be recognized. A certificate gives them something that is a tangible sign of achievement. (CK)
