educator? How would you like to gain an extra

10 hours per week?

Let our team help you add a whole week

to your month!

is like getting your very own staff of experts:

  • And they receive a constant supply of inaccurate media information and ads.
  • Plus, you need a huge variety of information on never-ending topics!

Communicating Food for Health takes care of your patient education challenges:

  • You will have the answers to questions that your clients are asking before they ask or we will find them.
  • You will have a constant supply of relevant, easy-to-understand patient education materials that always look great.
  • You will be ahead because next month’s information is here 3 weeks early.
  • And you receive creative presentation ideas on endless amounts of topics. Be a star with a few clicks or use our upgrade with the PowerPoint Library!
  • There are thousands of handouts and recipes waiting for you and your patients!


Join this growing family of dedicated members who want to make a difference in their clients' lives with engaging, accurate information for nutrition and lifestyle education.

Recipes alt StephStephanie Correnti, RD, called us because she was getting ready for a few cooking parenthesisLdemonstrations and wanted to make things that her clients would really want to learn to prepare. They were requesting healthy ethnic dishes.We jumped on it, developing and photographing some great ethnic recipes for Stephanie and her clients. We made tasty Chicken Enchiladas, Curry Chicken, Lowfat Egg Rolls, and Fiesta Rice. Then we put the recipes and photos up in our member library. Now all of the Communicating Food for Health Members are benefiting from Stephanie's request too.

We bet you have some requests of your own.
Let us know what they are -- we would love to have them.

Diet alt 080420Victoria-076-EditVictoria Shanta Retelny, RD, LD, saved a lot of time one week because, when sheparenthesisL needed a few handouts for clients, she asked us to create them. Just like that, we wrote a few and sent them her way. She has also been a long-time reader and contributing editor for our publication.Thanks to Vicki, the handouts we crafted (one about the paleo diet and another about vegan eating) are now in the member library.
News Alt Screen shot 2013-03-28 at 8.03.15 AMElovia Peddle, MS, RD, LD, saved herself a ton of work by requesting some parenthesisLhandouts for her classes. She is teaching 12 different classes, including one about caffeine and chocolate for heart month.Now the handouts we crafted are in her inbox (and our member library). As we made the handouts, we were shocked to discover that some candies contain as much caffeine as 6 cups of coffee, and we were happy to list the heart benefits of cocoa powder along with some chocolate treats (with fewer than 100 calories each) and tips for using cocoa in cooking.
myths alt KarlaKarla Logston, RN, BS, CDE, requested an article about the latest TV gimmicks, likeparenthesisL Raspberry Ketones, Magic Tea etc. She told us that almost daily, her team talks to their members at events and and hears about something clients started because they saw it on Dr. Oz, etc.When the team had time to explore these approaches with those clients, they found out that the members are drinking unsweetened tea when they are hungry, so it’s not the “magic” tea, but the fact they are drinking something with zero calories that fills them up! Karla wants something to help debunk these myths and reveal the actual strategies behind them. There are now handouts and articles on all the latest TV ads in the library.

Thanks, Karla! Editors and dietitians are working on this project now.

Help alt Barbara Hart And Barbara Hart, MS, RD, requested lists of snacks for rural, low-incomeparenthesisL diabetes patients.Those lists are now posted to the library and recipe database. You can also use our great ideas to help you and your clients put simple, quick, and flavorful meals on the table every night.

"Hello Judy-
I'm just getting a chance to email back to you and inform you how the cooking show went that I did with another RD. It aired for 2 weeks on our local TV station. I made the roasted vegetable dinner and the other RD made a quinoa pilaf to go with the veggies. It turned out great! We did different flavor sorbets with fresh berries and shavings of >70% cocoa chocolate on top for dessert--it all looked great on film! We highlighted the nutrition in this meal for cancer prevention during April Cancer Month! Thank you so much for your wonderful ideas--it was a good experience and I am glad I did it--I think it would be great to get RDs out in the public more spreading our passion for good health by good nutrition!
Thanks again Judy,
