What is FANLit?
FANLit is a knowledge portal of evidence-based food and nutrition literacy resources to support food education. These resources can be used by school- and community-based educators teaching children & youth ages 4-18. Though our main audience is in Manitoba, Canada, anyone can use them. The portal is a living entity - resources will be added over time as they are developed.
We believe in a holistic approach to food and nutrition education. In addition to food skills and nutrition, FANLit has resources on culture and traditional foods, fostering positive food relationships, and the links between food choices, food production, social justice and our earth.
FANLit was developed, and is hosted by, the Department of Food and Human Nutritional Sciences at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada. FANLit is overseen by a Community of Practice consisting of teachers, dietitians and community-based educators.
