The Food-Climate Relationship: The Registered Dietitians’ Balanced Approach to Positive Change

As food and nutrition experts, it is important for Registered Dietitians to understand the connection between where and how our food is produced and the subsequent impact on the health of individuals and our environment. The American Dietetic Association’s Hunger and Environmental Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group (HEN) and Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) jointly formed Sustainable Foods in Health Care Taskforce, has created this resource to help dietetic professionals advocate for nutritious, sustainable health care food. We believe this resource will assist you in understanding the links between how food is produced, processed, and transported and the effect this has on human and environmental health.
