Eating MORE Fresh Produce with Jaclyn London: Nutrition Director, Good Housekeeping Institute at Hearst Magazines


“More vegetable and more fruit – that’s easily the most important thing that is involved in good nutrition and what nutrition really means”

In episode 8, Lori sits down with Jackie London from Good Housekeeping. Jackie writes and reports on nutrition news and trends, noteworthy products, “myth-busting” diet fads, weight-loss tips, eating advice, and diet stories for the magazine. She also conducts GH’s taste-tests, in which she’ll establish nutritional criteria for products in a food category and then conduct large-scale taste-tests to report in the magazine.

“It’s not nutrition until it’s eaten”

Jackie also reviews all of the food products that want to use the Good Housekeeping Seal, and evaluates packaged food claims (“low-sodium,” “high-fiber”) to make sure they’re legit.  Jackie is one of the visionaries behind the Good Housekeeping Nutritionist Approved Emblem, which launched in 2016 and serves as a new Good Housekeeping Seal for food products.

“It’s only one day at a time and one meal at a time”

Jackie’s work is featured in the “Ask Jackie” column in Good Housekeeping Magazine as well as the Health section of the GH website. https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/health/
