Earlier this month the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sponsored the world’s largest meeting of food and nutrition experts.

More than 10,000 registered dietitians, nutrition science researchers, culinary nutritionists, policy makers, health-care providers and industry leaders attend the annual meeting the first week of October. The main purpose was to address key issues affecting the health of all Americans, and how nutrition and diet could help.

The annual the Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) features more than 100 research and educational presentations, lectures, debates, panel discussions and culinary demonstrations. More than 400 exhibitors from corporations, government and nonprofit agencies showcase new consumer food products and nutrition education materials.
