Can we improve the Dietary Guidelines? – Diet Doctor Podcast

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans influence the food we eat, yet they aren’t based on high-quality science. That’s why cinnamon rolls, chocolate milk, and pizza are “approved” foods in our schools and on our military bases.

Nina Teicholz, award-winning journalist and founder of The Nutrition Coalition, aims to change that. Through her advocacy work and investigative writing, she promotes the need for applying more rigorous science to the guidelines process.

While many challenges remain, Nina helps us identify the changes that need to be made and what we can do to enact them.
