RD Coach Spotlight: Madhu Gadia

RD Coach

Being a RD Coach is one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. I have worked as a clinical dietitian and a diabetes educator for years, primarily with people with health issues. As a RD Coach I have an opportunity to educate children early about making healthy food choices and the importance of Energy Balance, to help prevent weight and food issues. The best part of this whole program is that kids inspire each other. I can just see it now, in just two years these same children will tell their parents, "Mom, Dad, where are the vegetables? There are no fruits in the house. You only buy low-power foods!" — after all, in my experience, it was first the kids that made adults start recycling — go kids!
