At the end of this module you will be adequately prepared to have almost any conversation regarding the nutritional benefits of common breakfast foods in Spanish.

If you find this course as exceptional as we do, we strongly encourage you to check out our core course, Speak Spanish With Your Patients/Clients here!

In this module you’ll learn/experience

  • ·Common cultural breakfast foods
  • ·Vocabulary for breakfast proteins, dairy, grains, fats, fruits and vegetables
  • Vocabulary for breakfast beverages
  • Useful expressions for breakfast conversations
  • Conjugation of the verb “To eat” in the present
  • Interactive quiz to confirm your newly found knowledge of breakfast foods
  • A role play between the RDN and the patient


I took 8 years of Spanish in school, but much of the food and nutrition-related vocabulary is difficult for me to recall. This course is unique because it focuses on language that is likely to come up in a nutrition counseling session. Speak Spanish With Your Patients/Clients serves as a good refresher for RDs who have some Spanish knowledge, and it is also helpful for non-Spanish speakers who may need help communicating simple phrases. I highly recommend this course for learning how to confidently communicate with Spanish-speaking patients! - Meghan Donnelly, MS, RDN, CDN
