Letter: Let’s not judge others on their food choices

Let’s not judge others on their food choices

As a dietitian who specializes in the treatment of eating disorders, I am proud of Kerry Cahler for going public with her continuing struggle with an eating disorder (April 22 News). Making peace with food is an important, but certainly not the only part of the long road of recovery from an eating disorder.

Sometimes we eat a souvlaki salad for dinner and sometimes we eat pizza for dinner. It is important not to pass judgment on ourselves or others. Both fit in a normal, healthful approach to nutrition.
