National Nutrition Month® Week 4: Consult a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Happy National Nutrition Month®! The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics provides the National Nutrition Month® weekly goals. The fourth and final week encourages you to meet with a Registered Dietitian.

As a Registered Dietitian, I want to encourage you to search for factual and accurate sources for all of your nutrition needs, especially when searching on the internet. Make sure your nutrition facts come from reputable sources. Look at websites that end in .edu or .org. Be cautious about websites that end .com when looking at nutrition information. A good tip to remember is just because you see something on the internet, does not mean that it is always true.

Remember that the LSU AgCenter provides information that is research based. All of the programs, including the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) provide class participants with resources that are research based. You can always reach out to your local LSU AgCenter extension office for resources and any questions that you may have.
