Trauma Informed Nutrition
…is a fact sheet intended for Registered Dietitians (RDs) and was designed to support and describe the connection between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the impacts of trauma and its relationship to chronic disease, and trauma-informed nutrition practices.
This is linked to the work we do at City Slicker Farms because Women, People of Color and Food Insecure folk are at a greater risk to experience multiple ACEs. We hope to allign with and practice trauma informed nutrition through our communication about food justice, through our mutual aid programming (inlcuding mentorship programs, town fridge program, etc.) and by continuing to educate ourselves on food justice practices.
This factsheet was developed through a collaborative partnership between the @capublichealth, Injury and Prevention Branch and the California Department of Social Service, Office of Child Abuse Prevention’s (CDSS/OCAP), Essentials for Childhood (EfC) Initiative and CDPH’s Nutrition Education Obesity Prevention Branch (NEOPB).
