As health and wellness continues to be at the forefront of many people’s minds, accessibility to nutritious food is often seen as a barrier. Retail RDs are well positioned to help their shoppers navigate the grocery aisles to find versatile and affordable options. Whether this includes in-season produce, buying in bulk or finding shelf-stable options, retail RDs are there to help make shopping easier for customers and encourage them to eat sensibly anywhere. This webinar, sponsored by Quaker Oats and Bare Snacks, will discuss affordable, versatile and nutritious products, provide dietitians with creative ideas on how to promote these products through their programming and share guidance on additional strategies RDs can use to help their shoppers make the most of their grocery budget.
