Reviewers Comments: Name That Veggie! is an online slide show that can be used to in nutrition education classes to reinforce types and amounts of vegetables, as recommended by the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The first 10 slides provide an overview of the current recommendations for vegetables. The remaining slides are a game in which four descriptive facts are provided and audiences are given an opportunity to guess the vegetable.

It is recommended that this resource is used with an instructor with a background in nutrition, and not as a stand alone tool. Instructors should be familiar with the current vegetable recommendations from the 2010 Dietary Guidelines and MyPlate. While basic nutrition facts are given, this resource would be most effective when accompanied by an explanation and discussion of the questions. The resource may be used by itself if it is used as a review or evaluation piece, following a more comprehensive nutrition lesson.

This resource includes great visuals, including vivid photos of real food. The interactive nature of the presentation keeps it fresh and stimulating. It can be used with audiences of all ages, and will be enjoyed by both children and adults. The slides would work best when used in an informal group setting, such as in a small classroom or group meeting, but it could also be adapted to work in larger lectures or even in a one on one setting. The length of the presentation will vary depending on the amount of discussion included.

While it is not necessary to have extensive experience with PowerPoint to use this resource, it would be helpful to have a basic background by practicing with the slides before presenting them. The slides were designed to run on PowerPoint 2003 or newer and when presented in “slide show” format. Using a projection screen and/or speakers is optimal, but not necessary.

A related handout is also available to go along with the slide show. The slide show may be modified and adapted to include additional vegetables, but please credit original authors.
