The Dish: Real Talk About Food is a direct education intervention designed to increase participants' daily intake of fruit and vegetables; whole grains; fat-free or low-fat dairy products; decrease daily intake of sodium; improve food resource management, food safety practices, and physical activity.
The interactive micro-lessons are self-paced, and the mobile-nature of many Internet-accessible devices (i.e., smartphones) encourages learning at the point-of-decision making, such as engaging in quick decision guide lessons in a grocery store. Additionally, the asynchronous “anytime, anyplace” lessons aim to mitigate traditional barriers to attending in-person classes, such as issues with transportation, variable work schedules, and child-care limitations.
