Sports Dietitians Gather for First-Ever Farm to Refuel Workshop

ADA North East’s Sports Nutrition Advisory Panel, or SNAP, gathered this week to tour Kreider Farms dairy and processing plant in Manheim, Pennsylvania, and to attend a communications skills training workshop where they received continuing education credits as approved by the Commission on Dietetic Registration for registered dietitian nutritionists.  

SNAP consists of 11 nutrition experts and registered dietitians from the ADA North East region that support messaging that dairy helps to optimize athlete performance. Dairy advocate Heather Mangieri, RDN, CSSD, and ADA North East lead consultant, worked closely with our team to develop the program. 

SNAP members contribute sports nutrition content that we share with state high school athletic associations to include in their newsletters and on social media platforms to athletic directors, coaches and athletes, as well as for use on ADA North East digital outreach.
