A Better Nutrition Menu: Fiber (Adults)


Use the Better Nutrition Fiber Menu to help make sure your client is getting enough daily fiber. 
Has your client asked about fiber intake and whether he/she is getting enough in their diet? Based on the results of assessing fiber intake using the Better Nutrition Fiber Evaluation, you have the data and insight now to make better, total and personalized fiber nutrition recommendations.
When it comes to better fiber nutrition, it better be delicious, better be doable, it better not make your client’s tummy troubles worse, and it better not make it harder for the body to absorb other nutrients better. Thankfully, the Better Nutrition Fiber Menu is here to take away the uncertainty and to help you help your clients get a better, fiber-rich diet. Invite your client to follow the menu each day or choose menu items for inspiration to bump up their current nutrition choices to ones that contain more fiber.
How much fiber does the body need to run better?
Use the Better Nutrition Fiber Evaluation to determine your client’s better fiber amount. Also, as your client adds more fiber, don’t forget to increase water intake (it’s good idea to have your client do the Better Water Evaluation, too!).
Using The Shop of Better Nutrition Assessment Tools, you have made better, personalized, total nutrition recommendations for your client, including inviting your client to incorporate the Better Nutrition Fiber Menu. If you are a healthcare provider, get permission to share the results of the assessments with other members of your client’s healthcare team. Did you know that you can seamlessly use these tools with your Practice Better, Healthie and other EHR accounts? For an example, Learn how to Practice Better Nutrition in this post.


How do I use the Better Nutrition Adult Fiber Menu with my clients?
Your clients can follow the Better Nutrition Adult Fiber Menu as-is, or as a guide to consuming more fiber on a daily basis. Encourage your client to do what is better for them!
How much fiber does each recipe provide?
You and your client will see daily totals for the fiber content as you view the list of menu items. We also combined fiber intake into a daily total for ease of use and understanding.
What else should my client consider when increasing fiber intake? 
Water! Water helps fiber work better. Make sure your client is drinking enough water as he/she increases fiber intake.
Should I recommend a fiber supplement?
At The Better Nutrition Program, we suggest starting with fiber-rich food sources first, then potentially recommending a quality supplement if needed. Visit the Better Nutrition Supplement Store to see our approved choices.
