Disclosure


rds4disclosurebadge-copy(Updated March 2017)

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and a Licensed Dietitian (LD) in the state of Georgia. For 30 years, I taught nutrition at Georgia State University in Atlanta and now hold professor emerita status. Currently, I run a small business, Chris Rosenbloom Food & Nutrition Services, LLC, (chrisrosenbloom.com) to provide nutrition consulting services to health professional organizations, food commodities, and food companies. I also work with The Ginger Network, an independent marketing communications firm. In addition, I write book chapters, food and nutrition articles in peer-reviewed professional publications, and articles of general interest to consumers online and in print.

The information on this website, and through my blog, “Fit to Eat,” are not sponsored or paid by any company, industry, or food commodity. I will never provide information that I know to be false or misleading. Nutrition is a science that is constantly evolving, providing new evidence for dietitians and consumers to consider. As such, sometimes my views on a food or the nutrition science will change, but only if the strength of the science warrants a change. All the views expressed in my writing are my own. When I obtain information at a sponsored conference, I will disclose the sponsor and use the hashtag “#sponsored.” Occasionally, I receive free samples of foods or new products, and I will only write about them if the product aligns with my professional and personal values. It will not influence the accuracy or honesty of my content. I will disclose if the product was a freebie.

Press Trips

Occasionally, I am invited to go on a press trip. The purpose of a press trip is to allow writers to visit places and events they normally would not have access to. If I write about a place or what’s produced there, I will identify the posts as #Sponsored or #Sponsored Travel. I will only write about a place if I gain new insights and think that readers might enjoy it, too. I am not asked or paid to write about the trip. As a registered dietitian, I am interested in learning about all aspects of food production; from the farm to the table, and press trips allow me to visit with farmers, see a harvest, and watch the processing and packaging of a product. For example, recently I took a trip to Virginia to see how peanuts are grown, harvested, and processed. Talking to the farmer about climate challenges, pest management, and the ups and downs of crop yield was a valuable experience that I wouldn’t have gotten by reading a press release.

Over the past 5 years I have worked with the following companies, professional organizations, or publications. I work with companies that I believe in and that match my values.
