Welcome to nutritionALL!

     I would like to welcome you to nutritionALL, a new blog which will serve as your resource for interesting, important, and most of all useful nutrition information! I will provide you with nutrition and diet tips that you can easily work into your daily life to improve your health at home, at work, and on the go! I will provide useful tips and recipes for your family, from infants to seniors (and sometimes ever your four-legged friends)! I will be keeping you up-to-date with food and nutrition trends, federal legislation which affects your diet and safety, and evidence based nutrition information that changes what we currently know about health and nutrition! I will be offering food and nutrition facts to help make you more aware of your food choices and the way you eat! Finally, I hope that you will be providing me with your feed back, via comments, email, and twitter, so I can best help you help yourself!

    Before we get to far, let me formally introduce myself! My name is Britney Stretsbery. I am a Registered Dietitian. I work for a non-profit organization in Detroit, Michigan as a Dietitian for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). WIC is a federal program which provides nutrition education, supplemental food, and referrals to other health care services to income eligible, nutritionally at risk pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding woman, infants, and children up to 5 years old. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and completed my Dietetic Internship at the University of Michigan Hospital and Health Centers. I am passionate about public health nutrition, and enjoy teaching others about nutrition! I enjoy cooking, reading, biking, gardening, camping, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, and am currently learning how to sew!

    I am pleased to introduce nutritionALL at the start of World Breastfeeding Week 2011! What could be a better way to start a new blog than by corresponding it with the celebration of the best source of nutrition for newborn babies!

For more information on World Breastfeeding Week, please visit!

     So, as for now, this site is a work-in-progress! As I learn more about sharing information in the digital age look forward to a wider variety of information via posts and links! Please check back regularly for nutrition information in an easy-to-use and fun format on topics such as (but certainly not limited to!): family nutrition, the latest food trends, recipes, living green, product reviews, and many other tips and tricks to help you lead a more nutritious life!
