You Asked It!

Feed Your Mind

Somewhere I read or heard, a person will get educated if they truly want to be educated. One food related topic that falls into this statement is learning about genetically engineered foods, commonly referred to as GMOs. The FDA, along with the USDA and EPA, have launched a science-based initiative to address GMOs called “Feed Your Mind.”

GMO foods have been available for many years, but many consumers are still confused about what they are and how they are used in our food supply. Educational materials are being developed for dietitians and high school science curriculums to be released later in 2020 into 2021.

Information on the Feed Your Mind website is also available in Spanish.
