Food Literacy: A Framework for Healthy Eating

To gain a better understanding of the meaning of food skills, The Locally Driven Collaborative Projects (LDCP) Healthy Eating Team identified and summarized the key attributes of food literacy. This is depicted in the Food Literacy Framework which includes eleven interconnected attributes, organized into the categories of food and nutrition knowledge, food skills, self-efficacy and confidence, food decisions, and other ecologic (external) factors such as income security and the food system.
