The Retail Dietitians Business Alliance, in partnership with House Foods, is pleased to announce the launch of our latest EduTrac® – Plant-based in the Context of Healthy Eating. EduTracs are designed as an online education tool, allowing retail dietitians to review them at a time and place that works best for you.
Cassandra Umile, R.D., L.D.N, the manager of Nutrition Services and Food Production for The Kenny Family ShopRites of Delaware, was named the Retail Dietitian of the Year by the Retail Dietitians Business Alliance (RDBA) at the RD Retail Exchange earlier this week in Chicago.
This summer, the trend is to blend and it’s a great time to show your customers how this technique makes burgers, tacos and more not only more nutritious, but also more delicious and sustainable. Demo The Blend on your store retail channels for the chance to win a $1,000 continuing education stipend!
Culinary experiences, including cooking classes, in-store meal prep, and engagement of RTH/RTE departments, are becoming a more central part of the retail dietitian role. Consumers continue to need assistance with getting balanced meals on the table and incorporating nutritious foods, like StarKist tuna products, into these meals.
One of the hottest trends in 2018 is the movement towards more frequent plant-forward meals. From family favorites like tacos to trending items such as bowls and meatless burgers, there are countless ways for your shoppers to choose vegetarian meals more frequently.
