Public Health Nutrition Education: How to Effectively Convey the Satter Division of Responsibility (sDOR)

Date: January 26, 2023

About this training program

The Satter Division of Responsibility (sDOR) is the gold standard in feeding dynamics from birth to young adulthood for many practitioners. It has a strong evidence base and is the basis for advising parents and caregivers on child feeding in many settings. However, communicating sDOR through public health/community-based nutrition education campaigns is not without its challenges.

Hear from Sandy Maxwell, registered dietitian and faculty member of the Ellyn Satter Institute about her experiences as a public health dietitian developing and implementing a campaign targeted at parents/caregivers based on sDOR. Sandy will share successes and challenges implementing the Trust me. Trust my tummy. campaign in her community. Participants will hear strategies for an effective public health campaign based on sDOR and will learn how to apply the Ellyn Satter Institute (ESI) tool for assessing public health nutrition education messages.


After participating in the webinar, you will be able to:

  • Explain an evidence-based and theory-driven approach to public health nutrition education
  • Identify barriers and facilitators to conveying Satter’s Division of Responsibility (sDOR) through a public health nutrition education campaign
  • Describe a strengths-based approach to public health nutrition education
  • Use the ESI rubric to assess public health nutrition education messages
