Everything I have learned about eating good has come from Dr. McDougall, Esslestyn, Campbell and a few good documentaries, as well as yourself, Jeff.
Now that I belong to a gym I just got a message for an upcoming event: Join us on Monday for our Kids eat Healthy campaign! Come into our lobby between 5-7 pm for information on healthy eating for kids and the entire family.
Out of curiosity I asked for some more info and received:
Hi Stephen, her name is Jen! She is a student with the Academy of Nutrition and dietetics. She will be handing out pamphlets and giving email links to interested folks who would like to learn more about it. Thanks!
I am planning on attending, but not really sure if it's going to beneficial. I did read a bit on the Academy of Nutrition and dietetics. Should I just go in with an open mind and take what I can from an event like this?
We can always learn from any situation if we approach it with an open mind.
BTW, she is a student, so don't expect much and go easy on her.
What might be of interest if to ask her what she thinks about vegetarian and vegan diets for children. She is most likely not familiar with the ADA position paper on the topic so it may be an opportunity to have an interesting dialogue. Of course, having the paper, (which is posted in this forum), or just their position statement handy, may be of help. But again, go easy on her and look at it as an opportunity for mutual gain.
