This is a site that features only bloggers who are registered dietitians. The goal is to provide a trusted destination for reliable, science-based nutrition information.
All participants must be registered dietitians. For RDs who have blogs, they must meet the established criteria and complete an application to be included in the Network. Bloggers are approved based on pre-established criteria and only approved blogs will be featured on the site.
No. Everything is free. There are no costs to join the Nutrition Blog Network.
Weber Shandwick provided the financial support to help launch and maintain the Network, although the public relations firm is not participating in the creation of the content and is not responsible for the information. Nutrition Blog Network was created by registered dietitians Janet Helm of Nutrition Unplugged and Lori Fromm, who are the administrators of the site. Even though the participants may be members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the AND is not affiliated with the Network.
Registered dietitians are food and nutrition professionals who have met stringent educational and professional requirements. To learn more, or to locate a registered dietitian in your area, visit eatright.org.
No. Not at this time. But we look forward to welcoming future RDs to the Network.
