Critical Media Literacy Series!
We all know that social media is a major source of misinformation, including about food and nutrition. In fact, information on nutrition, food trends, diets, weight loss and vitamins are among the most popular topics! As vast consumers of social media, youth are especially vulnerable to ‘fake news’ or potentially harmful advice. To help reverse this alarming trend, FANLit has started a series of resources to help build critical media literacy skills.
Welcome to FANLit!
FANLit is a knowledge portal of evidence-based resources to support food and nutrition education. These resources can be used by school- and community-based educators teaching children & youth ages 4-18.
