Of the handful of nutrition courses offered via Coursera, this one is my fave. No nonsense and clear presentation that moves at a good pace. A lot of helpful information that is derived from solid scientific studies.

Excellent, well organized, covered a lot of material from a scientific, data driven perspective. Able to download lectures, slides. Homework was challenging but very on target for subject matter.

Unreliable info, it's mostly propaganda for the large commercial food interests such as grain and dairy. Claims to be "evidence-based" but many statements are made that have no studies supporting them, while forum threads by those who disagree give lots of studies supporting their side.
