Healthful-Eating Stance Announcement

04/03/2020 - The Academy Board of Directors has approved the organization's Healthful Eating Stance:

"The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics believes the foundation of a healthful lifestyle is a pattern of eating nutrient-rich foods in appropriate portion sizes, combined with regular physical activity. Credentialed nutrition and dietetics practitioners use the best available science to develop personalized healthful eating recommendations for all people at every stage of life. A registered dietitian nutritionist is the expert source for customizing an eating plan based on a person's health status, culture and personal preferences."
