Daily, we are bombarded with messages that appear to contradict each other, and even leading nutrition scientists seem to have differing opinions on basic nutrition questions. Is dietary fat good or bad? Should we count calories? Are all calories the same? Most of the answers to these questions are complicated, and widely debated.

Here at the Nutrition Toolbox, you can expect reasonable and relatively easy to understand answers. The Nutrition Toolbox will help you navigate the world of nutrition with some level of confidence and clarity, and introduce you to a few Nutrition Heroes – professionals and institutions with no conflicts of interest who are truly advancing the field. With these resources, we aim to create a population of well-informed eaters, discerning readers, and conscientious consumers.
