With the rising rates of chronic disease and increase in western diet consumption, the introduction of nutrition education is essential for improving health outcomes. Given that poor diet is a modifiable risk factor for chronic disease, it is an area that should be targeted to improve health outcomes. The incidence and impact of conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer can be reduced with nutrition education. Therefore, creating a supplemental nutrition education resource for adults was created to teach basic nutrition to help prevent disease and help guide them to healthy eating patterns that can help keep them healthy during a pandemic. For the project, nine nutrition-related topics were chosen for the curriculum. These topics include nutrient dense foods, fruit and vegetable intake, heart healthy foods, saturated fat, low fat dairy, gut health, fiber, and inflammatory diets. The completion of this project will enable educators to use the lesson plans to increase basic nutrition knowledge in adults. In turn, this would positively affect healthier lifestyle choices and physical changes. Future research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of the project lesson plans on meeting learner outcomes.
