Editorial review from educator:

“Communicating Nutrition: The Authoritative Guide comprehensively and succinctly lays out the essential skills needed by dietitians to successfully communicate with their audiences. The chapters provide vivid real-life examples and are easy, engaging, and entertaining to read.  What I love most is that the book is written by dietitians for dietitians.  I thoroughly enjoyed teaching with the pilot and would recommend it as a must read.  Regardless of whether you're a dietetics student or a seasoned dietitian, it will serve as a useful learning resource and/or valuable refresher as you seek to become a more effective nutrition communicator.”

Feedback from students:

  • "I loved the personal feel the book brought to learning. There were personal stories and tips that stood out to me, especially the chapters on food photography, video communication, and demonstrations."

  • "Overall I think nutrition communication is a cool topic that we have not been exposed to much. We tend to focus on the science side of nutrition rather than how our knowledge reaches people."

  • "Very interesting and informative information. As someone who has worked a lot with communication, I still learned a lot of new information!"
