CHANDLER, Ariz. — Bashas’ corporate dietitian Barbara Ruhs will be featured presenter this week on a free webinar entitled “Supermarket Nutrition: Promoting Health and Wellness.”
The webinar, sponsored by the Yakult Company, a pioneer in probiotics research and manufacturer of probiotic products, is set for Oct. 20.
While the session targets dietitians and nutritionists, Ruhs will be presenting information that could be of general interest to supermarket operators.
“Retail dietitians are teaching shoppers to navigate the market aisles and discern the plethora of health claims. … Learn more about these successful programs and how supermarkets across the country are educating and inspiring customers to become health-conscious shoppers,” according to Yakult USA’s promotional materials.
Points underscored in the promo materials are:
• Get an introduction to the broad range of roles and responsibilities of registered dietitians in retail supermarkets.
• Discuss innovative health and wellness programs in supermarkets that educate and inspire consumers to choose products, including functional foods such as probiotics.
• Apply strategies to create nutrition education and marketing programs at retail establishments to address public health concerns.
