Frieda’s Celebrates Retail Registered Dietitians
LOS ALAMITOS, CA - As consumers seek out a more rounded plate full of fresh fruits and vegetables, retail registered dietitians are becoming more of a reliable resource in educating shoppers and retailers on how to make the best food and lifestyle choices. March 11 was National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, and Frieda’s Specialty Produce took the time to celebrate these in-store superheroes.
“The store-level retail dietitians are really the healthy eating coaches of the grocery store,” said Alex Berkley, Director of Sales. “They are an accessible, approachable, and affordable (or free) source of advice for shoppers to make the best decisions when it comes to healthy, delicious eating. And from our experience, store-level retail dietitians love to promote fresh produce!”
And those advocates are deemed high up in ANUK’s book! According to Frieda’s press release, USA Today cited that hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes continue to be top health conditions in the U.S. A great way to combat those health concerns is working with a retail registered dietitian, which can lead to healthier eating, better compliance with medication, and improved health results.
A 2019 study of hypertension patients, originally reported in ConsumerAffairs, revealed that 30 participants who received three counseling sessions from retail dietitians over the course of 12 weeks saw favorable results.
With a strong player like retail dietitians on the front lines, consumers and retailers can both benefit from the positive fresh produce encouragement in everyday lifestyles.
