“We are really excited to announce the writing of a new book focused on telling the stories of Registered Dietitians and their practice in Newfoundland and Labrador. This is a passion project, an idea that started many years ago.”
• Glendora Boland, Retired Registered Dietitian, Fellow of Dietitians of Canada, Dietitians’ Book Project Lead
“... from food fortification, food security, school food policy and poverty reduction ... Registered Dietitians in Newfoundland and Labrador have (in many ways) paved the road for nutrition policy in our country. There is a rich and fascinating history.”
• Eleanor Swanson, Retired Registered Dietitian, Former Director of Health Promotion and Wellness, Government of NL
“Readers of this book will have their eyes opened to the vast history and influence of Dietitians in our province, from pre-Confederation to today. The return to breastfeeding as the cultural norm in our province is a great example of how far we have come. We want to make our professional colleagues aware of this project, so they can become engaged and share their experiences.”
• Janine Woodrow, Registered Dietitian, PhD
People: Profiles of Registered Dietitians (retired and practicing), researchers, academics, policy makers, activists with insights and thoughts about food, nutrition policy, professional development, and evolution
Policy: Legislation, health regulations, school food, food security, nutrition programs, and fortification
Practice: What do we eat? Why? How?
