As more and more busy families are turning to the Internet as a source for health-related information, The Minute Maid Company has added "Carolyn's Corner" as a monthly feature on its Web site -- minutemaid.com. Carolyn's Corner is written by Carolyn Moore, Ph.D., R.D., Manager of Nutrition for The Minute Maid Company, and is designed to provide on-the-go families with nutrition and wellness information.

"My friends, family and even co-workers frequently ask me health and nutrition questions, and they appreciate having a nutritionist on hand," said Moore.

"The Minute Maid Company has taken this idea a step further and is allowing me to share nutrition tips with families who go to the Internet for information."

"We are committed to creating the best beverages for healthy living, and Dr. Moore plays an integral role in helping us fulfill this pledge," said Don Knauss, president and CEO, The Minute Maid Company.

The first installment of Carolyn's Corner, "Pouring on Hydration This Summer Season," focuses on the importance of staying hydrated to beat the heat. Carolyn pays particular attention to children and seniors, who are more susceptible to dehydration since they are less sensitive to thirst. She provides fun and creative ideas on how to drink more fluids.

Carolyn's Corner will be updated monthly. Next month's installment -- "Back to School, Back to Calcium" -- will help moms learn about the importance of building healthy bones during a critical growth time for kids.

"As a professional, a student, and a mom of two young kids, I know personally about not having a lot of time, but still wanting to provide my family the most healthful options. I'm pleased to be able to share nutrition information and help other busy families who want to do the same," said Moore.

Moore holds a Ph.D. in Nutritional Sciences from UCLA, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Food Science and a Masters in Nutrition from the University of California at Berkeley. She is Immediate Past President of the Texas Dietetic Association and serves on the board of the American Heart Association, Houston Division.
