Imagine learning about nutrition where you want it, when you want it, even right on your phone! Families in Nebraska and South Dakota are doing just that with The Dish: Real Talk About Food.
The Dish is a series of 25 short, interactive eLearning micro-lessons. Each lesson helps to improve the health, well-being, and resilience of families. These micro-lessons:
• offer life tips for users to plan meals, save money, and shop and eat healthier.
• are self-paced and easily viewed on a smartphone. This encourages learning at the point-of-decision making.

The Dish is a collaborative project between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s SNAP-Ed and EFNEP and South Dakota State University SNAP-Ed and EFNEP. The project began in 2018 and was launched to the public in 2020. The planning phase included a needs assessment, as well as discussion groups with people that were eligible for or participating in nutrition assistance programs. The needs assessment revealed:
• that participants rely on mobile devices,
• that connectivity and technical literacy are not an issue and
• that self-perception of nutrition and wellness knowledge is high.
