Teleconsultations became the norm during the onset of the pandemic but its popularity has not waned because of the convenience it brings to people seeking expert medical advice. Inspired by this innovation, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC Group), in consultation with the Philippine Society of Nutritionists-Dietitians (PSND), developed and recently launched the Nutrition Advice web app. The feature allows Filipinos to easily connect with nutrition experts wherever they are.
Nutrition Advice is a two-way digital communication tool where users can receive expert and personalized recommendations from licensed dietitians and lifestyle doctor. It is designed to provide nutritional advice related to weight management, diabetes, and hypertension.
