CHICAGO, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals is launching EatRight Radio, a new online resource with free public service announcements that encourage millions of people to improve their health.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has created a broadcast team of registered dietitians – the food and nutrition experts – to create a network of free public service announcements beginning this summer.
"Whether you're at the gym, behind the wheel or in front of a computer, EatRight Radio offers practical health and nutrition advice to keep you healthy," said registered dietitian and Academy President Ethan A. Bergman.
"The Academy's new PSAs provide the opportunity for us to share with the public that when it comes to your health, little changes in eating and physical activity can really add up over time," Bergman said.
Thirty- and sixty-second EatRight Radio PSAs are available online in both English and Spanish and feature a registered dietitian offering current science-based health and nutrition tips, including eating gluten-free, promoting children's health, supporting a healthy pregnancy, the temptations of late-night snacking and more.
