The Restaurant Nutrition Experts


Kathleen Papandrea, R.D.

Culinary Dietitian
Kathleen began her professional career after graduating from San Diego State University with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology. Witnessing the rise of obesity, she realized an education in exercise and fitness was only part of the solution, so Kathleen went on to complete an additional bachelor’s degree in dietetics. Empowered with knowledge in both fields, she has a stronger foundation for educating others about the connection between health, fitness, and food.

As a culinary dietitian, Kathleen is focused on collaborating with restaurants to identify and establish menu items that meet Healthy Dining’s nutrition criteria. Kathleen also performs menu nutrient analysis and helps bring healthy dining options to your home table. “I enjoy reviewing published recipes from popular restaurants around the country to find delicious and healthy options for our Healthy Dining guests to enjoy at home,” says Kathleen.

As a military spouse and new mom, family time with her husband and son is what Kathleen focuses on most in her free time. Additionally, cooking is a true passion that has brought Kathleen an appreciation for how cultural food practices of others relate to overall health.
