Calling all dietitians attending the International Congress of Dietetics in September: Test your knowledge of Australian-grown grains and legumes at our “MasterDietitian” Challenge. Guess the three grains and three legume types correctly and you’ll be in the running to win a copy of the e-cookbook ‘The Tired and Hungry Cook’.
The Grains and Legumes Nutrition Council is looking forward to the International Congress of Dietetics (ICD) in Sydney from the 5th – 8th of September. For the first time in 34 years this international conference will be held in Australia and over 2,000 attendees from around the globe are expected.
Some of the sessions we are particularly looking forward to are the symposium on ‘What helps people lose weight and keep it off, a summary of the evidence’ from several leading Australian dietitians, as well as the presentation ‘Food fortification: the evidence, ethics and politics’ by the Australian APD Associate Professor Mark Lawrence.
We are also very pleased to have an exhibition stand at a dietetics conference for the first time. To celebrate we’re holding a “MasterDietitian” competition on the stand sponsored by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC). More than nine different grains and twelve types of legumes are grown in Australia. Do you think you would recognize a mung bean or know the difference between a grain of wheat and a grain of barley? Visit us on our stand at ICD to find out and test your skills against other dietitians in our “MasterDietitian” competition.
Each session we’ll have three types of grains and three types of legumes hidden under tagines for you to lift the lid and guess their identity. Guess correctly and you go into the draw to win one of 18 e-cookbooks from StoneSoup blogger Jules Clancy (www.thestonesoup.com). There will be a new chance to win each session as the grains and legumes will be different every session. For the Tweeps among you, we will be providing hints and announcing the winner via twitter so stay tuned to out hashtag #masterdietitian. To follow us on twitter click here.
We will also have all of our resources available for you to pick up, including our latest scientific updates on the benefits of grains and legumes in the diet. Our whole team will be there so please do stop by and say ‘hi’. We would love to meet our e-news subscribers face-to-face.
