The Great Protein Dietitians Challenge
Join other dietitians from around the country and PLAY your protein for a day.
The Great Protein Dietitians Challenge is where dietitians come together in teams to take on eating less than 10 grams of protein for a day – all in the name of raising awareness and supporting people living with rare genetic metabolic (protein) disorders.
Sign up a team and take on the challenge for just one day this February .

The Great Protein Dietitians Challenge is a fun way for health professionals and dietitians to learn about the difficulties some people have with healthy eating when living with a metabolic condition such as PKU or other protein IEM. All monies raised go directly to the MDDA (Metabolic Dietary Disorders Association) to help support people living with PKU and other rare inborn errors of protein metabolism.
