Nutrition Glossary

Champions for Change ’s Nutrition Glossary provides information about the nutrients commonly found in fruits, vegetables, and other plant foods to help state and regional staff develop materials with consistent nutrition information, and aid in training staff on how to educate consumers about their health benefits.


Each glossary definition has a long and a short version. Each version can stand alone as an accurate description of a nutrient. When using the glossary for training purposes, the long version should be used to give educators the most detail possible. When using the glossary for educational materials that have limited space, the short version should be used. The Nutrition Glossary is available as an educational tool on the Network’s Communications Resource Library at http://www.cdph.ca.gov/PROGRAMS/CPNS/RL/Pages/default.aspx​​.
