Groceries for Gut Health
Presented by Kate Scarlata, MPH, RDN, LDN
This presentation includes an introduction to how probiotics and fermented foods can be favorable additions to a healthy lifestyle, as well as contribute to the gut microbiome. The benefits of consuming fermented foods, the importance of using strain-specific probiotics for certain benefits, and how probiotics and live cultures in food differ are discussed. Finally, Kate will share gut health tips every retail dietitian should know in order to advise their clients appropriately — including foods to keep in the pantry and fridge, the convenience of probiotic foods, simple swaps, lifestyle habits, meal planning and grocery lists, along with using other resources included in an Activia Gut Health Toolkit.
