We bet that your life looks a lot like our lives – full of family, work, friends, school, involvement in the community, and always, always busy.
You know that taking care of your health and your family’s health is important, and you want to do everything you can to eat well. But it takes time to shop for and prepare healthy meals, monitor what the kids are eating for lunch or snacks, fit in that work-out. It’s easier to eat or order out than it is to cook; do you have to sacrifice nutrition for convenience? How do you maintain a healthy routine when traveling or when you’re flying solo because your spouse is out of town? What about the family member who has a food allergy, or is an extremely picky eater? Maintaining healthy eating on a day-in, day-out basis, can be really hard. Does any of this sound familiar?
Nancy Piho and Christine Ju are both second career Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, living and working in Washington, D.C. We both chose this field because of our love of food, helping others, and our understanding that nutrition is a real science, tied very closely to overall health and well-being. We combined our backgrounds in business, marketing and the culinary arts with our licensed nutrition credentialing, and created Good Food Nutrition Group. We can help you and your family incorporate nutrition and healthy eating into your daily life in a way that produces long-term results.

After receiving her RDN credential and MS from Northwestern University, Christine Ju immediately began her career as a self-employed independent consultant. She has worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals and clinics, private companies, schools, and food service organizations. Through her experience, she found one-on-one counseling and nutrition education to be the most interesting and rewarding part of her job.
