Pick and Choose: A Videotape Series on Nutrition for Migrant Families (Coja y Escoja: Peliculas para Television Sobre la Nutricion para las Familias Migratorias).
One of the major problems faced by migrant workers throughout the United States is a lack of awareness of the relationship between proper diet and an individual's general health and well being. To help solve this problem was the major objective of the series "Pick and Choose." The three 15-minute programs in the series present information related to the nutritional needs of migrants and show migrants as they live, shop, cook and eat. The food suggestions take into account their tastes and traditional foods. Program I is devoted to the kinds of foods and the different nutrients within them. Healthful snacks, and safe food handling are also discussed. Program II is concerned with various shopping methods; information on labeling, unit pricing, bargains, etc.; complementary proteins; and foods as the source of energy and a feeling of well being. Program III considers weight control, junk food and low calorie snacks. Presented in a fast-paced "Sesame Street" type format, the programs are available on broadcast tapes, videotapes and 16mm films. This guide for the three programs explains the nutritional information in the series, lists recipes and activities that may be used with adults and/or children, provides handouts to take home, and lists resources for more information about nutrition. The guide is printed in both English and Spanish. (Author/DS)
