WHY:In order to most effectively reach Americans with healthy eating and nutrition messages, ADA regularly conducts public opinion surveys to measure people's attitudes, knowledge, beliefs and behaviors. ADA conducted its first nationwide consumer nutrition trends survey in 1991, with follow-up surveys in 1993, 1995, 1997, 2000, 2002, 2008 and now 2011. Each survey has identified trends and sought to understand how consumers' attitudes and behavior regarding food and nutrition have evolved over time.
The results of the surveys, individually and together, tell a compelling story of consumers' views on food, nutrition and health since 1991: Are people doing all they can to achieve balanced nutrition and a healthy diet? How important do they consider diet and nutrition to be? Where do Americans get their information about nutrition, and how reliable do they consider those sources to be? Answers to these and other questions will be presented at ADA's conference.
CONTACT: Journalists are welcome and encouraged to cover ADA's Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo. Only credentialed media representatives will be admitted to the briefing on ADA's nutrition trends survey. To pre-register for media credentials, visit www.eatright.org/fnce/media.
