About This Episode

Finding yourself sifting through tons of information on diet and nutrition? Not sure which direction to go? Dr. Karrie Heneman spent years researching nutrition at UC Davis and helps families develop healthier choices for mealtime. She joins Dr. Kristin and talks about her experiences, better sources for information, and why there’s no such thing as “bad” food.

“The field of nutrition is moving in leaps and bounds, but there’s still a lot that we don’t know. So if you follow advice from someone who is not looking at the research, you may get the wrong answer.”

“Food isn’t good or bad. Food is fuel. And if you come at it from that approach, I think you have such a healthier attitude.”
