- Eat, Drink & Be Healthy Columnist
Jennifer LaRue Huget wrote her first article for The Washington Post -- a travel story about Harriet Beecher Stowe’s house in Hartford, Ct. -- in June 2000. Soon after, she became a regular contributor to the Health section, writing about everything from parenting, tooth whitening and Crocs to her laparoscopic gallbladder surgery and her 2001 diagnosis with multiple sclerosis. Since 2008 she’s written the weekly Eat, Drink and Be Healthy nutrition column and Lean & Fit e-newsletter and blogged about health for The Checkup. When not reporting on health, she writes children’s picture books and does yoga. She, her husband and their two teenage kids have an inordinate appetite for pizza.
