In discussing dietary guidelines around the world, I posted an assignment for students to visit the link below from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to access a listing of countries from around the globe with their corresponding Food-based Dietary Guidelines and graphics. More than 100 countries worldwide have developed food-based dietary guidelines that are adapted to their nutrition situation, food availability, culinary cultures and eating habits. Students were to choose one country from the listing, review the information regarding that country's guidelines with special note of the section "Messages". They were to summarize the key messages and to compare to what we'd covered about the DGAs - taking note of common recommendations, but unique cultural or cuisine aspects. A fun resource!
