The latest Dietary Guidelines recommend that Americans eat more health-promoting foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy or equivalent products, seafood, beans, peas, and nuts. At the same time, individuals should limit solid fats, added sugars, and salt. Is it any wonder that healthy eating is easier said than done? We need all hands on deck. It is so important that institutions play a major role in supporting individual healthy eating patterns. The payoff? Better health and reduced risk of a long list of major chronic diseases linked to poor diet.
Our RDNs are ready to analyze the nutrition content of your organization’s food and beverage options. This information will help your organization:
- Identify opportunities to modify ingredients to align with the Dietary Guidelines
- Display nutrient information to help consumers choose healthier options
- Identify ingredients that may be a source of food allergens or intolerances for consumers
Additionally, we offer the following services: menu and recipe development, training for food service staff about healthy cooking methods, and custom educational materials.
