How can digital technology help teach children and families about nutrition? Which approaches are most effective for specific conditions such as obesity and celiac disease? How best to distribute new learning tools and track which patients use them? The Lawson Centre supports two projects that aim to answer these questions about e-learning for nutrition and health.

Centre educators and researchers have created and are testing digital learning tools for children and families, including interactive programs and videos, in partnership with clinicians, dietitians and IT experts.
