Good morning folks! Here's something I'm excited about:
It's been eight days since the launch of Nutrition Blog Network (NBN), a new website featuring a collection of nutrition blogs written by Registered Dietitians. In explaining the background for the site, the founders Janet Helm, MS, RD and Lori Fromm, MS, RD, state that "the Internet is still the Wild Wild West when it comes to finding reliable, credible nutrition information. [The Nutrition Blog Network] is a site you can turn to for trusted advice from nutrition experts."
I couldn't be happier. I agree that the world of online nutrition is like an untamed frontier, and sometimes the task of researching a nutrition topic is like blazing a new trail- it's both time consuming and tricky. Fortunately NBN offers guidance as a new nutrition resource, and Helm and Fromm note that the site is intended to "help cut through the clutter and elevate the voice of registered dietitians (RDs) online."
I am not a Registered Dietitian yet, but perhaps someday I can contribute to this resource. In the meanwhile, let's check out Nutrition Blog Network to enjoy fresh nutrition news and to nibble on healthful information from reputable sources. I'm excited to see their site grow as new blogs are added to their Nutrition Blog Directory.
So what are your thoughts about the online world of nutrition?
Can you share a favorite resource for nutrition information?
