Emma Stirling, Australian Practising Dietitian and founder of Scoop on Nutrition, is excited to see Storehouse come to life to celebrate her blog’s 5thanniversary:

“In the age of social media where everyone is an influencer, it’s really important that people feel there is somewhere they can go when they’re looking for credible information backed by research and education.

“It’s also fantastic for the nutrition community to have a place to share resources and insights, and where they can help raise their own profile in the process.”

To ensure the integrity of the site, bloggers will need to bea Member of the Dietitians Association of Australia, anAccredited Practising Dietitian(APD), anAccredited Sports Dietitian(AccSD), Nutrition SocietyRegistered Nutritionist(RNutr)or a student dietitian enrolledat aDietitians Association of Australia accredited course. The membership criteria will also ensure the relevance and timeliness of each blog.

Development of the site was made possible by a three-way partnership betweenNuts for Life, anutrition education initiative of the Australian Tree Nut Industry to encourage Australians to enjoy a healthy handful of nuts every day, food and nutrition communications consultancy, Bite Communications, and Scoop on Nutrition.
