What a great presentation, Eating Well While Eating Out: How calories on the menu can guide healthy choices! If you missed the recording you can still obtain CPEU by watching the video which will be posted this week on the event page.
Dr. Karen Chapman-Novakofski had a chance to personally talk with Sheryl Dolven about menu labeling. You can listen to the audio cast.
What is still surprising to me is that many consumers still do not know what calories are and how to use them. It will be incumbent for Dietitians and all health care providers to help educate and provide a context for this new menu information.
Many resources were shared in this webinar to help your patients/clients understand menu labeling and how to make healthier choices when dining out. You can find more information under Event Materials on the Learn Event page.
