Founded by Deirdre Pizzoferrato, RD, CDN, Nutrition Nanny® is a local and web-based service aimed at educating and empowering all consumers on how to make better food and lifestyle choices. From neonatal nutrition to the golden years of longevity, there is not an age or phase that does not require the right nutrients to support it. But what exactly are the right nutrients?
Over the past 50 years, we, the consumers, have been bombarded with confusing and conflicting messages about what, when and why to eat! Since the 1970s, we have seen our food environment change dramatically. The availability and accessibility of calorically dense foods, coupled with the disappearance of social norms that once helped govern our eating behaviors, have all contributed to the epidemic of obesity and illness. This epidemic shows no signs of slowing, nor does it discriminate; Since 1999, obesity among children aged 2-5 has risen from 9 to 14%.
Through our innovated approach to educating and empowering, Nutrition Nanny® will help you better understand the insidious risks associated with our hyper-palatable and addictive food environment. And with simple tools to help with meal planning and diet management, Nutrition Nanny® will help make your life easier and healthier!
