The goal of this continuing education program is to provide nutrition professionals with information about the role of choline and raise awareness of the lack of choline in most Americans’ diets.Choline has been recognized as an essential nutrient for about two decades, yet only 10% of the U.S. population consumes adequate amounts in their diets. Choline plays a critical role in health yet is often overlooked by both healthcare professionals and consumers. Clients and patients should be counseled to include choline-rich foods in their diets. This course is needed to help close this knowledge gap and ensure more people are educated to consume adequate intakes of choline in their diets.
