RUA: Nutritional Assessment Discussion

RUA: Nutritional Assessment (Team Project) Guidelines PURPOSE To evaluate, compare, and analyze menus from different agencies and suggest revisions for healthier food choices based on the cultural and age group. Students in a cultural concentration will use that specific cultural focus to complete this assignment. Those students in a cultural concentration (such as the Hispanic concentration) should be grouped together for this assignment. However, should the groups be mixed (with students in the cultural concentration and students not in the cultural concentration), the RUA must explore the cultural concentration (e.g., Hispanic). COURSE OUTCOMES: This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

CO1. Assess whether nutritional intake provides basic nutrients for optimal health and wellness. (POs 1 & 2)

CO2. Describe nutritional needs for optimal health and wellness throughout the lifespan. (POs 1 & 2) CO3. Discuss the psychological, sociological, economical, and cultural implications of food on

nutritional status. (POs 1 & 2) CO4. Describe evidence based practice interventions and modifications in nutrition therapy that can

positively influence the outcome of disease and illness. (POs 1 & 8) DUE DATE: Your faculty member will inform you when this assignment is due. The Late Assignment Policy applies to

this assignment. POINTS POSSIBLE: 100
