FLASH - AHA!

Founder and dietitian Chris Cheyette

introduces Carbs and Cals Flashcards

FOOD

REPORT

O

ver the years, we have

always looked at ways

to support healthcare

professionals with

teaching different

aspects of nutrition. This includes carb

counting and portion sizes, as well as

increasing awareness of other important

components of healthy eating, such as

fibre intake.

Having facilitated many diabetes

education courses, I was aware of the

benefit of a variety of teaching methods

to help people grasp different concepts.

Many of us have used flashcards in

the past for exam revision and spelling

tests. They can be an effective addition

to a learning practice in order to retain

information, and are a great way for

healthcare professionals to incorporate a

different style of teaching and group work

into their sessions. As there weren't any

high-quality nutrition flashcards available,

we decided to produce some - first

starting with a playing-card size pack, and

then moving to the much bigger size of

the current packs.

Why flashcards?

The books and flashcards serve different

purposes: the flashcards are designed

to be used as a teaching resource both

by healthcare professionals and people

at home, whereas the book is used as a

reference guide with a much wider range

of foods.

• The Carb & Calorie Counter book

contains 1,700 food photos and is for daily

One of the Carbs and Cals Flashcards for a popular Italian meal.
