As a Nutrition Communications Consultant, I am sometimes paid to write, but most of my posts at Chew the Facts® are unpaid. When I have been paid to write on a topic, I will disclose the sponsorship within the blog post. I only accept consulting positions with companies or organizations whose views I am aligned with and who provide evidence-based information. I provide science-based advice and my balanced, real-world messages are appealing to many within the food industry. As a parent, my practical philosophy about encouraging children and teens to eat well, is often sought after. My views and opinions are my own and are supported by science and peer-reviewed publications as I interpret them.

At times, I also represent clients when posting on social media channels or commenting on blogs. When I do represent or partner with a company as a paid consultant, I will be transparent in that representation with any comment post or within a social media post (using hashtags such as #sponsored, #client, #partner #advisor, or other appropriate disclosure per client’s request). There are also times that my expenses are covered for business travel on behalf of an organization (in which I do not have a contract), but I am not being paid for any future generated content based on what I see or learn (#sponsoredtravel).
