    Presentation of the book
    The Media Committee delivers timely and reliable food and nutrition information in the media. In the past few months, AADYND and its members have participated in programs through multiple media outlets (TV, radio and graphic press). AADYND publishes monthly newsletters in its website and social media that generates great interest, and demands the participation of AADYND spokespersons in the media to comment on diverse food and nutrition topics. Some of the topics covered recently were: eating healthy during the Holidays (December), hydration during the summer (January-February) and school lunch (March).  AADYND spokespersons were also quoted in articles related to healthy eating during inflation, published by Argentine newspapers.  In 2013, AADYDN participated in a 12-chapter TV series called “Como, luego existo” (“I eat, therefore I am”) that is being broadcast in 2014 on Canal Encuentro or on You Tube.  You can watch it at http://www.encuentro.gov.ar/sitios/encuentro/programas/ver?rec_id=119080.
