Kids Eat Right: New resource from ADA and the ADA Foundation

The American Dietetic Association (ADA) and the ADA Foundation have launched a new initiative, Kids Eat Right. The new website is packed with easy-to-use content - tips, recipes, and videos - all created by Registered Dietitians (RDs), including some by yours truly!

With three sections focused on how to Shop Smart, Cook Healthy, and Eat Right, Kids Eat Right offers a wealth of information for families with children from infancy to adolescence. I am particularly pleased that ADA/ADAF have chosen to focus on the nutrition that children are missing rather than on overweight and foods that should be eliminated. This positive approach is important to promote smart food choices for all children, not only those in a certain weight category. The site promises new tips and recipes every Monday - so you can sign up to receive the updates in a variety of ways.

Stay tuned for more on Kids Eat Right - and other efforts to shift the current conversation on childhood obesity in more positive and effective directions.
