Have you seen our newest nutrition poster? We had so much fun creating it for you. Finding just the right food for each letter was a blast, and we're absolutely thrilled with the result.
Let this poster inspire you to make your own educational displays. You can use the same basic principle to craft any fun, engaging nutrition poster you'd like.
Simply find great photos or drawings of healthful foods (magazine ads are great for this) and form the food photos into letters that spell out a key word for your nutrition presentation.
Of course, if you want to spell out "nutrition," the poster featured above does your work for you, but what if you want to focus on fruit, a particular nutrient, or even the idea of cooking? A "cooking" poster can include photos of delicious and healthful dishes, as well as the ingredients in various stages of preparation. For example, a salad could include the whole vegetables, the sliced vegetables, mixing the dressing, and the finished product. A "featured nutrient" poster could include images of all the foods that are rich in that nutrient. Be creative!
This approach also works well for displays that promote physical activity. Why not take great sports images and form them into the word "exercise?" Or find photos of sports equipment (hand weights, treadmills, running shoes, etc) and arrange them to spell the phrase "Get Active!" You can apply this idea to all kinds of great presentations.
So how can you make a great nutrition poster? Now you know!
