Follow Friday: Stop junk food giants from taking over nutrition programs

Leave a comment

Concerned about dietitians’ organizations ties to the food industry? You probably should be. It’s wrong for corporations like Pepsi, Coke, and McDonald’s (to name a few) to be providing funding to organizations that represent health care professionals who provide nutrition counselling. It’s also inappropriate for those organizations to be providing “educational” sessions at dietetic conferences. Here’s your chance to stand-up for dietitians; sign the petition to sever ties between the “junk food giants” and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Hopefully this effort will spill over into Canada and Dietitians of Canada will stop accepting sponsorship from the food industry.
