Twitter chat #eatkit
Do you suffer from nutrition confusion? Are you unsure about the “right” healthy eating guidelines? Do you just simply enjoy chatting all things food? Then you will love our live, monthly Twitter chat.
#EatKit is one of the fastest way to hear the latest credible tips and tricks from expert dietitians around the globe. Become part of the community and participate in question time, plus share your own insights and views too. Join us and find out if the gluten free craze continues? Or the culinary nutrition guide to the best herbs? A new hot topic from sugar to paleo will be explored each month.
The hour-long chat is a virtual venue to discuss the latest headlines, new studies, controversial topics and issues related to the food we eat. The chats is moderated by Catherine Saxelby and Emma Stirling, Australian Accredited Practising Dietitians (APD’s). We’ll also invite special guests or authors to lead the discussion.
Questions will be asked by the moderator (Q1, Q2, Q3, etc.) and participants will respond to questions (A1, A2, A3), add comments or RT other answers.
The chat is open to everyone — you don’t have to be a dietitian or health professional. Anyone interested in food and nutrition can take part, and various viewpoints are welcome. The only requirement to participate is a Twitter account. If you missed the live tweeting, you’ll be able to find the monthly conversations archived here.
#EatKit is held monthly on the third Wednesday of each month from 9-10 pm Australian ET. This is roughly 6am EST USA; 11am London, UK, the same day, depending on daylight savings. Search for #EatKit on Twitter to read latest posts and to find out the topic for the next month and links to the archives.
The chat happens live on Twitter and you can join in at any time during the hour. Simply log on to your Twitter account and you can use any of these options to help you manage the conversations.

This is an open chat of a general nature. It is not intended to be a place to ask for medical advice or personal health problems. If you need advice for an individual medical issue, we suggest you make an appointment with an accredited practising dietitian (APD) or your health care professional.
We value openness and transparency. If we mention products by brand, this does not imply an endorsement of any kind from our #eatkit group. If you work for or act as consultant to a particular food or food category, please declare your interest so we can listen to what you say within that context.
