Obesity Study Underscores Consumers' Need for RDNs

In the wake of a recent study by the Journal of the American Medical Association showing the obesity rate among children ages 2 to 5 years old dropped by 43 percent between 2003-2012, the Academy reminded the public and news media that no one study can be considered definitive, and that the Academy draws on the entire body of research in our healthful-eating recommendations to consumers.

Read the Academy's press release about the obesity study.

The Academy reminded everyone that Kids Eat Right, a joint initiative of the Academy and its Foundation, has mobilized registered dietitian nutritionists nationwide to provide education and outreach to communities, families and kids.

"To make lasting, positive changes in the health of children and adults alike, and to help ensure that future research continues to find our national obesity rate going down, requires evidence-based, effective health interventions, as well as the skill and expertise of our country's registered dietitian nutritionists," said Academy President Dr. Glenna McCollum, MPH, RDN.
