The Academy's Corporate Sponsorship Program

To advance the Academy's mission of empowering members to be the food and nutrition leaders, the Academy's corporate sponsorship program allows for purposeful collaboration with food and nutrition organizations.

Through structured, Academy-directed relationships the objectives of the Academy's corporate sponsorship program are:

  • To work with industry to build awareness of the Academy and its members
  • To share science-based information, new research and industry trends in food and nutrition with members
  • To enable the Academy to reach millions of consumers with healthy eating messages

For the Academy, relationships with sponsors are not about promoting their products or services, but rather about creating nutrition messages that people can understand and act upon to improve their health and that of their families. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and its entities consider the Academy's vision and mission in all decisions, including whether to enter into a relationship with an outside company and/or organization.

  • Vision: Optimizing health through food and nutrition
  • Mission: Empowering members to be the food and nutrition leaders

The Total Diet Approach to Healthy Eating: The Position of the Academy

It is the position of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that the total diet or overall pattern of food eaten is the most important focus of healthy eating. All foods can fit within this pattern if consumed in moderation with appropriate portion size and combined with physical activity. The Academy strives to communicate healthy eating messages that emphasize a balance of food and beverages within energy needs, rather than any one food or meal.

To better understand the Academy's position, please read the complete position statement on the Total Diet Approach to Healthy Eating.

Guiding Principles of the Academy's Corporate Sponsorship Program

The corporate sponsorship program is structured and equitable with each sponsorship level rights and benefits determined and monitored by the Academy. The Academy has worked with sponsors for many years and closely evaluates all potential sponsorships to ensure that they are consistent with the Academy's science-based position and messages.

The Academy adheres to and enforces the following principles in its relationships with sponsors:

1. Adherence and commitment to the Academy's mission, vision, positions and policies

Academy sponsors are committed to the mission and vision of the Academy. Each sponsor’s objectives reflect this commitment and are aligned with the Academy’s strategic goals.

2. Scientific Accuracy

All sponsor materials, presentations and information shared with members are internally reviewed for scientific accuracy, adherence with the Academy’s positions and policies and for audience appropriateness. This review is by the Academy Knowledge Center, a team of Academy staff RDNs as well as non-staff member experts on areas of specialization when necessary.

3. Non-endorsement

The Academy does not endorse any brand, company product or service.

4. Non-influence

The Academy's programs, leadership, decisions, policies and positions are not influenced by sponsors.

The Academy's procedures and formal agreements with external organizations are designed to prevent any undue corporate influence.
