I’m a Nutritionist by qualification, a teacher and researcher by profession and counselor and blogger by passion.
I have completed my Ph.D in Food Science and Nutrition from S.N.D.T. Women’s University, Mumbai, India. I have been in the field of teaching for the past almost nine years. I have a couple of publications in national and international peer-reviewed journals as well as books.
I have been a dedicated student of Foods and Nutrition over the past 15 years and continue to do so. The area of Food and Nutrition is very dynamic in nature. There is a lot of research that has been happening in this area. Food and nutrition are integral parts of our daily life. So much so that, we now-a-days are bombarded with increasing number of social media posts on food and nutrition. Many of these are quite misleading for you.
In view of this, I along with a team of qualified nutritionists and dietitians wish to keep you updated about different issues/facts/myths in this area. We intend to make you aware of the latest evidence-based literature and research so that you can learn and educate yourself and others close to you. This will enable you to make informed healthy choices and treasure your health for longer time.
I am registered with the Mumbai Chapter of Indian Dietetics Association
