Healthy Bites With Rita Smith: Mom Always Said Eat Your Vegetables

Hi! I’m Rita Smith, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator. I’ve been working in the field of nutrition and disease prevention for over 35 years, and currently work at Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, VA. I look forward to chatting with you each week on various nutrition topics – from using dietary approaches for cholesterol reduction to managing the painful symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Nutrition is ever-changing and can even be confusing. I hope to make sense of current nutrition topics and provide reasonable, healthy-eating tips for you and your family to be well and stay well. Of course, for medical advice, diagnosis, treatment and care, be sure to work with your own health care provider.

  1. My mom used to say that to me but now, I loss my temper saying those words over and over again to my kids. They’re kinda picky and you know they just hate veggies. My tried to go cooking seminars to learn different recipes and found some that tastes and looks like meat but truly, it was made of veggies! Cool, isn’t it?

  2. Thanks for reminding us Rita. Nutrition is very important in a person’s life. I like your goal, scheduling and advice on this article. I’m also looking forward to hear all your advice. I’d like to be a very healthy person.
