Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics GENIE Resource
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation and ConAgra Foods Foundation have developed a tool for dietitians to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of nutrition education programs that they have designed. Its name, “GENIE”, stands for “Guide for Effective Nutrition Intervention and Education”. This tool can serve as a resource for the development and improvement of nutrition programs. The website can serve as a quality improvement tool for CNMs to measure ways to improve performance. The website listed below has more information and videos explaining this tool. It also contains a link to the self-assessment checklist which is free to AND members. This is also a great resource to use in grant writing to determine if your program is strong enough to potentially receive funding.
