As we know, in order to help better counsel patients, one has to understand their culture and traditions, and how they relate to the foods they eat. Judaism is not the exception. This religion is basically a lifestyle, with its own diet, the kosher diet. This webinar will cover basic kosher dietary laws, customs and traditions. Understanding this lifestyle will help you to better guide and counsel this population in achieving their ultimate nutrition goals.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
Understand what a basic kosher diet entails.
Recommend appropriate nutritious foods that fit the kosher dietary laws.
Identify kosher food symbols.
Understand main dietary restrictions/traditions for main Jewish holidays.
