This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on consumer aspects in planning meals is the third in a set of five modules on consumer education related to foods and nutrition.

Following the module objectives and overview, two units of instruction are presented: (1) principles of meal management and menu planning (includes six lessons on the consumer and meal management, planning meals to meet physiological needs, psychological needs which influence meal planning, cultural aspects in meal planning, socioeconomics of meal management, and the principles of meal management applied) and (2) reliable sources of nutrition information.
