The ENACT course: education for effective nutrition in action

ENACT is a course for professional development in nutrition education. FAO developed the course between 2012 and 2016 after a needs assessment exercise revealed that professional training in this field was almost non-existent and that nutrition education often failed to go beyond imparting information and advice. 

The ENACT course uses a practical approach to nutrition education that has students practicing what they have learned, reflecting on problems and case studies, and discussing what works and why. It consists of ten units, plus one optional unit (5A Theory) that cover the basic principles and practice of nutrition education, and includes activities designed to explore aspects of real life, discover principles in action and apply what is learned.
