The Nation's Nutrition: It's Time to De-Stress

Research Team: Carol Byrd-Bredbenner

Project Duration: 4/2006 to 8/2007

This project aims to understand nutrition stresses and offer viable solutions. Phase 1 focuses on compiling and distributing information, informing Americans on how they can harness the power of today's food supply to alleviate nutritional stresses and improve health. Phase 2 will allow researchers to collect information on what families are stocking in their pantries, determine caloric and nutrition information, and offer suggestions on a “pantry make-over” to eliminate nutrition stress.
