Nutrition Spotlight is your one-stop source for daily, credible nutrition information and news. At Nutrition Spotlight, we know how time-consuming it can be to stay up-to-date on constantly-evolving nutrition advice and how challenging it can be to identify what’s credible and what’s not.
So we do the work for you.
We get our inspiration from a variety of news sources, scientific journals, web sites and blogs. We then sort through the information, analyze it for credibility and accuracy, and feature the best stories of the day for you.
So who are we anyway?
Nutrition Spotlight is written by two friends, colleagues and registered dietitians, Laura Chalela Hoover, MPH, RD, LD and Adrienne Jenkins Davenport, MPH, RD.
As nutrition communicators, we have more than 15 years combined experience in translating nutrition science and policy information into easy-to-understand language. We both currently consult for a number of food companies, commodity boards and public relations agencies to develop and implement nutrition education programs.
We first met — and learned the rigors of nutrition science — when we got our master’s degrees in public health nutrition from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Laura lives in Chicago with her husband and 1-year-old son. Adrienne lives in El Paso with her husband and is expecting her first child in August.
