Nutrition information added to websites

By Diane Palmer

baskets of vegetablesNutrition has become a hot topic due to concerns about obesity and health issues. Many people want to know what to eat to help maintain a healthy body.

“As more people turn to the Internet for information, we are posting nutrition fact sheets on Clemson’s Home and Garden Information Center website,” said Katherine Cason, Extension food safety and nutrition program leader. She is assisted by Janis Hunter, public information specialist.

The fact sheets are posted at http://hgic.clemson.edu/ under Food Safety, Nutrition, Diet & Health. They provide information on nutrition and dietary guidelines, food shopping and preparation, food technology, health, food safety and preservation. Fact sheets are also available in Spanish.

Nutrition podcasts are being developed in both English and Spanish and are posted at www.clemson.edu/itunesu/ on the Food Science and Human Nutrition channel.
