FAQ

Who is “The Nutrition Press”?

The Nutrition Press is a student-run community founded by Rachel Ben-David for informed and passionate nutrition & dietetics students. We aim to innovatively connect like-minded students together to ignite a passionate nutrition community that is more informed, engaged and aware of the range of opportunities that a career in nutrition has to offer! Head over to our Meet the Team page to find out more about each member of The Nutrition Press team.

 

How can I join the team?

Here at The Nutrition Press we are always looking for fresh new faces and would love to have an many of you onboard as possible! Unfortunately our team is currently at capacity and we aren’t in a position to take on new writers at this time. If you are interested in joining the team we have regular writer intake periods in February and August each year. This will be advertised on The Nutrition Press website and on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

 
Can I repost your articles on my own blog/website?

Our authors and editing team put a lot of work into our articles and we’d appreciate it if you don’t use them without permission. Please email us at director@thenutritionpress.com if you have any inquiries. As for recipes though – feel free to use/adapt them as long as you give us credit and a link. Thanks!

 
Do you provide advertising/sponsorship opportunities

It’s important to us that The Nutrition Press is authentic and transparent, so we are selective about our partnerships and only partner with or share brands we believe in and use. When we do partner with a brand or work with an advertiser, we disclose that relationship. Sponsored posts, giveaways and gifts are always noted as such.

 
Do you have any advice for students wanting to start their own blog?

Students having an active voice on social media is so important and provides value to the whole community. Nobody ‘owns’ nutrition and, it shouldn’t just be ‘professors of nutrition’ and the ‘wellness gurus’ talking about it through the media and social media. We strongly encourage all students to be active and make a name for themselves on the internet – start a blog, get on Facebook, chat with us on Twitter, or even Instagram your dinner!

Just remember that once you publish something on the internet it will be out there for ever! In order to maintain your credibility ensure that any claims you make are backed up by a strong scientific evidence and don’t provide dietary advice unless you are qualified to!
