Welcome to Dietitians for Professional Integrity !

Not all dietitians are clueless or on the payroll of junk food or big pharma. Check out the outfit shown below. I can appreciate their situation. Dietitians are receiving so much bad press (check out the average diabetes forum) and so often caught with their hand in the tills of food companies that produce complete junk, they realise the gig is up. These professionals want to distance themselves from the brown envelope brigade. Who can blame them. Dietitians with more than nine functioning brain cells better take note, the days of pushing carbs, carbs and more carbs and dump that saturated fat are over. These old dogma dietary dinosaurs will soon go the way of the dodo and not before time in my opinion.

Welcome to Dietitians for Professional Integrity

We are a group of concerned dietetics professionals advocating for greater financial transparency, as well as ethical, socially responsible, and relevant corporate sponsorships within the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

This website was created to let you know more about who we are and why we do not think Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kellogg's, and other Big Food giants should sponsor the country's largest nutrition organization.

Our efforts are guided by professional integrity. We believe the American public deserves nutrition information that is not tainted by food industry interests. Those of us who co-founded Dietitians for Professional Integrity are nutrition experts first and foremost; we went to school to help people achieve better health through food, not to help multinational food companies sell more unhealthy products.

We thank you for your interest and support, and hope you enjoy learning more about our efforts.
