Daphne Oz is a New York Times best-selling author, public speaker and television host. She has been one of five co-hosts on ABC’s hit lifestyle series, The Chew, since its premiere in September 2011. Daphne and The Chew team earned their first Emmy in 2015 for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Hosts.

A graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Oz is The Chew’s fresh face of healthy living, sharing practical tips to make living well fun, easy and — above all — delicious! Daphne’s unique insights helped her create the healthy lifestyle she used to permanently shed more than thirty pounds without ever giving up the foods she loves. Her recipes balance being healthy and happy with fresh, fast, flavorful foods that are easy to prepare, smart ingredient swaps to help save on calories, and plenty of room for worthy indulgences.

Oz speaks publicly on all elements of the happy/healthy lifestyle. Welcoming her daughter has created a whole new set of priorities and renewed emphasis on finding ways to make it easy for families everywhere to create a healthy home life. Daphne has delivered addresses to campus audiences, women’s groups, and corporate events across the country, and was a featured speaker at LearnVest Live in 2013, the 2009 Aspen Health Forum at The Aspen Institute, and at Maria Shriver’s The Governor’s Women’s Conference in 2008.

She and her husband, John, and her daughter, Philomena, welcomed a baby boy, Jovan Jovanovic Jr., to the family in late October 2015. Daphne and her family split time between New York and New Jersey.
