The Food4me final conference on personalized nutrition was held in Brussels last week. Unfortunately I couldn´t make it live, but thanks to Social media, I was virtually there. From a purely professional point of view, I was pleased to learn that RD´s came out as one of the preferred providers for the provision of personalized nutrition services. The white paper should be out soon, I can´t wait to read the final conclusions!
Also check out this great infographic which I thought was quite relevant to personalised nutrition and how governments can help people make healthy choices. Make sure to read the full Lancet Obesity 2015 series by clicking the link:The Lancet: Obesity 2015
