|Reviewers Comments: ||Three Choose MyPlate tip sheets, part of the 10 Tips Nutrition Education Series, were translated to create two-sided bilingual versions: one side in English and the other in Vietnamese. The first, "10 Tips to a great plate," offers tips and ideas for balancing calories and choosing foods to eat more or less of according to MyPlate guidance. The second, "Salt and sodium" gives tips to help everyone, including children, reduce their sodium intake. The third, "Eating better on a budget," provides 10 tips to help people on a limited income stretch their food budget while eating healthfully through the three "Ps": planning, purchasing, and preparing meals. Another simple handout includes only a large version of hte MyPlate icond, complete with food group names translated to Vietnamese.|
These tip sheets and related handout can serve as a basis on which SNAP educators could plan a lesson on healthy eating or food budgeting and meal planning, though they may wish to refer to www.choosemyplate.gov for more in-depth and supporting information. Alternatively, these tip sheets could be provided as takeaway handouts following a class or posted/provided in waiting rooms at health clinics or SNAP offices in areas where there is a large population of Vietnamese-speaking individuals.
Of note to users, a "reverse-translation" of these documents from Vietnamese into English was not available, so the quality of the translation could not be verified.
