In this mid-course entry into your Nurse E-Portfolio for this course, you continue to have opportunities for reflective practice. In this entry you deepen your understanding and awareness of nutrition. Using the e-portfolio format, answer the following questions. Make sure you spend some time thinking about the answers to these questions before writing.
In the first entry you were asked to give yourself a rating from 1 to 5, with 5 representing the healthiest eater. What number would you give yourself now?
Did your rating change? If so, in what direction and in what way? What adjustments to your diet, if any, did you make?
Are your eating patterns based on family traditions or cultural or religious reasons? If so, do these support or promote healthy eating?
What two important nutritional principles or concepts have you learned and will always remember? What is their impact on your delivery of quality safe nursing care?
