Creole Diet Cards
Recommended Use: These files are downloadable as front and back flyers for patients with specific disease states. After talking with Haitian nurses and also hearing many common health and nutrition misunderstandings, I'd offer a couple recommendations for using these cards. It needs to be communicated that these diets are intended only for patients with these diseases. The hypertension and diabetes guidelines are fine for the general population, but care will need to be taken in explaining that just because some foods are not recommended for patients with certain disease states that those foods are "bad" for everyone. Some of the icons may need to be explained to patients. Don't hesitate to reach out via email or Facebook if you need clarity as well!
