Introduction: The Healthy Diabetes Plate (HDP), a four-lesson peer-reviewed curriculum for individuals with diabetes, helped 85-99% of subjects plan meals correctly and significantly increased their fruit and vegetable intake. It has been used on a limited basis.

Objectives: Convert the HDP curriculum to web pages that contain text, graphics, video clips, and are interactive.

Methods: A three-step process was used to design the website: (1) Conduct a needs assessment; (2) Collaborate with an interdisciplinary team (University faculty members, web designers, editor, videographer, food photographer, dietitians, and students); and (3) Evaluate the Healthy Diabetes Plate website design.

Results: The HDP website ( is composed of 12 web pages that include: (1) home page, (2) five food groups, (3) planning meals, (4) tips and tricks, and (5) video clips. It uses a visual format that includes 84 photos and video clips which illustrate types of foods to eat, portion sizes, shopping tips and cooking hints.

Conclusions: This website makes the HDP curriculum available to a global audience.
