American Dietetic Association Name Change

American Dietetic Association

The American Dietetic Association (ADA) had a big announcement last week – it’s changing its name! Now this might not directly affect the restaurant industry.  However, the ADA does influence areas such as the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which have influence new laws such as the restaurant labeling law. It’s also a great reference for anything nutrition related. So what’s the new name? Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The website will remain the same: eatright.org.
