Abstract

This paper critiques the appropriateness of current methods of nutrition education delivery in light of the increasing number of multicultural participants in nutrition education programs. Values regarding time, authority and trust, competition and independence, science and religion, and language impact education and generally differ between Caucasians and people from other cultures. This critique discusses these differences in terms of how they impact nutrition education effectiveness. Recommendations to decrease educational ethnocentrism are made.
