Even as restaurants are increasingly becoming more
nutrition-conscious, diners also need to shoulder some of the
responsibility for their nutritional habits and practice restraint.
Recent statistics from the National Restaurant Association show that 50
percent of meals in this country today are eaten out. In 1995, the
association expects that figure to rise to 75 percent.
The American Dietetic Association The American Dietetic Association (ADA) is the United States’ largest organization of food and nutrition professionals, with nearly 65,000 members. Approximately 75 % of ADA’s members are registered dietitians and about 4 % are dietetic technicians, registered.
