This presentation aims to delve into the Oldways Heritage Diets, offering insights into classifying healthful foods within these traditional dietary patterns. We will explore the essential components of nutritionally balanced culturally-relevant diets, spotlighting their significance in promoting overall health and well-being. Moreover, our discussion will examine the culinary landscapes of the African Diaspora, Asia, Latin America, and the Mediterranean, unveiling the key characteristics of healthy traditional diets unique to each region. Through this exploration, attendees will better understand the diverse foods and flavors that contribute to these culinary traditions. Furthermore, we will provide practical guidance on integrating culturally relevant foods and flavors into recipes and meal plans for programming purposes. By embracing the “old ways” of eating in nutrition education, we empower participants to adopt healthier eating habits that resonate with their cultural heritage.
