Throughout my dietetics career, I was provided already made handouts that were either too lengthy, hard to read, or had very old information to be used for my clients. That's when I started making my own. My first job as an RD was in a psychiatric hospital where the reading level is usually pretty low. Having simple and easy-to-read handouts that were not lengthy was a very important part of my counseling sessions and it still is!
