The evidence base for the Satter Eating Competence Model

The evidence base for the Satter Eating Competence Model



Constructs of the Satter Eating Competence model do not focus on specific foods or portion sizes and are thus out-of-step with traditional nutrition guidance.  However, studies across age groups, socioeconomic position, and cultural perspectives reveal eating competence to be a global construct associated with personal health promotion, fewer cardiovascular risk factors, better dietary quality, food resource management skills, sleep quality, weight status, parent food behaviors, and decreased preschool child nutritional risk.  The research-based evidence supporting nutrition education and counseling that are grounded in eating competence is robust and compelling.  This webinar details this research and describes how to measure eating competence to assess your outcomes. Webinar objectives:

  • Define and describe the Satter Eating Competence model
  • Identify the evidence base for the Satter Eating Competence model
  • Frame public health goals with eating competence



Professionals: your further questions can be addressed on the ESI Clinical Facebook site.  Non-professionals, please join us on the general interest Facebook site.
