Chef Johnny Carino
Corporate Executive Chef, King & Prince Seafood
Ambassador, Seafood Nutrition Partnership
Since becoming a Seafood Nutrition Partnership Ambassador I have taken the role very seriously and have taught 4 classes here at King and Prince Seafood and helped others learn my story. If you look at our small town of Brunswick GA and the number of folks taking the pledge here I am very proud of K&P Seafood for introducing us to the Healthy Heart Pledge and allowing me to share my story with others. As I tell them, it’s a real life changer and trust me it truly is.

In the beginning of each year, millions of Americans are inspired to make a fresh start and resolve to eat healthier, manage weight, and be more physically active. We all make resolutions with the best of intentions, but oftentimes the changes we make are temporary and then we go back to our normal routine.
Today, the USDA and HHS announced the release of the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA).
These guidelines are designed to encourage Americans to follow a lifetime of healthy eating in order to prevent chronic diseases like obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and Type 2 diabetes. The 2015 DGA recommend a shift towards healthy eating patterns, which include a variety of protein foods including more seafood. The general population should eat at least 8 ounces of seafood per week with the aim to take in at least 250 mg per day of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should eat at least 8 ounces of seafood per week for omega-3 fatty acid DHA to improve infant health outcomes.
The staff, Board of Directors, and chef ambassadors of the Seafood Nutrition Partnership invite the public to join us in sharing the health impacts they have achieved through the Healthy Heart Pledge. We invite you to share your story!
Seafood Nutrition Partnership is a 501(c)3 with a mission to inspire a healthier America through partnerships and outreach to raise awareness about the essential nutritional benefits of eating seafood.
