Slavin Publishes “Ditch the Single Nutrient Approach” in Today’s Dietitian

In the December 2016 Edition of Today’s Dietitian Joanne Slavin, PhD RD published an article titled “Ditch the Single Nutrient Approach” discussing the historic failures of past government mandated single nutrient approaches such as the low fat diet initiative and advises dietitians be prepared to properly educate consumers about “added sugars” without emphasizing the single nutrient approach by: knowing the science, explaining labeling as a tool for moderation, and focusing on the total diet. CRA provided funding for this article, though it wasn’t initially disclosed in the article, CRA rectified the issue by sending a letter on January 5, 2017 to Today’s Dietitian asking for full transparency which can be viewed here.
