Food Studies: Meet Amy, Who Quit Her High-Flying Job to Study Nutrition

by Amy Pratt

March 14, 2011


Now, aged 30, I'm in my first year of four studying Nutrition & Dietetics at King's College, London. On completion of the course, I'll be a qualified dietitian and will practice in the UK’s National Health Service. It will be my job to translate the science of nutrition into practical advice which will help patients take control of their health in very accessible, everyday ways.


It amazes me how little most people know about nutrition, and how many myths are out there. We shape our lives around food and in so many ways it can be make-or-break for our health. A little bit of knowledge about it can be hugely empowering.

To be continued... Amy is a student blogger for the Food Studies feature on GOOD's Food hub. Don't miss the voices of her fellow Food Studies bloggers as they chronicle their experiences learning knife skills, vermicompost, gastronomy, and more.
