I was fortunate enough to attend the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ 2013 Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (http://www.eatright.org/fnce) .
This year's conference and expo brought together nearly 7,000 registered dietitian nutritionists and other food, nutrition and health professionals, more
than 360 exhibitors and more than 90 journalists for four days of learning and networking.
Highlights from this year's event included:
- "Seductive Nutrition: Making Favorite Foods Healthy and Irresistible during which Craig “Skip” Julius, and Lisa Carlson, shared recent World Menu Reports and current sensory data to show that one way to improve diets and reduce calorie intake is to focus on making top dishes just a little healthier.
- Ellie Krieger's "Bringing Cooking Back
- "Unraveling the Science of Food Allergies " Todd Mahr, and Lynn Christie, provided an overview of the science with regard to food allergies, the guidelines available for diagnosis and management, and a review of the ongoing research to help treat and prevent food allergies.
But there were many more including many briefings on foods I hope to cover plus a massive exhibition of foods and related products
The next conference is in Atlanta in October 2014
The eat right website has lots of useful information on food and diet
