The second module, "The Well Balanced Diet" by Sue Verity, teaches the learner about requirements for an adequate diet, to select and evaluate diets, and to classify foods in terms of the four basic food groups. The third module, "The Four Basic Foods Groups" by Carol Erickson, looks at daily nutritional requirements and reinforces the importance of eating proper foods. The fourth module, "Basic Four Food Groups," designed by Nancy Graham and Brian Ann Arnett for sub-teen children, employs cartoons to illustrate the principles of proper nutrition and diet. The fifth module, "Basic Nutrition throughout the Life Cycle" by Evelyn S. Burgess, seeks to help students understand the significance of planning nutritional meals to fill the changing needs of individuals throughout their lives. The final module, "Religious and Cultural Influences on Diets" was prepared by Dianna Dee Mackey for nutrition students to help them anticipate diet preferences of clients of various religious and cultural backgrounds. Each module states overall and specific learning objectives and provides information, exercises with immediate feedback, and a post-test with answer key. (AYC)
