As a nutrition professional, Megan Holdaway believes there are opportunities to improve the health of all people, and through education and awareness, people can be inspired to make small but impactful dietary changes to improve their health. In her role, she applies her nutrition expertise to written content, sharing how good nutrition is key to lifelong health.
With rates of obesity and chronic disease continuing to rise and a plethora of competing voices telling people how to eat, especially advice based on opinion and not evidence, Megan
feels that the need for practical, evidence-based solutions has never been greater. To counter spokespeople who are not nutrition experts or even aware of nutrition science but are sharing tips on how to eat for good health, changes and solutions
must occur at all levels, from individual to global, which is why she believes nutrition education is so important.
A mom of two young boys, Megan wants to improve the health of all children and communities and provide her children with a better chance at lifelong good health and wellness through both education and environmental change. She believes that it is not enough to educate just her children on how to eat healthfully; rather, all children should be equipped with essential lifelong skills to create healthy communities for generations to come.
Megan has a B.A. in English from Brigham Young University and a B.S. in dietetics from the University of Northern Colorado; she completed her dietetic internship at Wellness Workdays.
I hope to be a voice that can empower people to live fuller, healthier lives by making nutrition research and complex nutrition topics relatable, relevant and actionable.
