Good Things Come In Steel Packages

With April encompassing Earth Day, and given the official launch of the CFA’s supermarket RD program, this month’s newsletter features Ginny Hair, Communications Specialist, who shares how we are working with dietitians in stores across the country to communicate the many benefits of canned foods with consumers. Also, we share a new Earth Day Infographic as a resource for all dietitians this month.

New Menu Modeling Research Tool Kit Peer Reviewed and Published in the Journal for Nutrition Education and Behavior

The CFA’s Menu Modeling Research Tool Kit was peer-reviewed and an article was published in the March issue of the Journal for Nutrition Education and Behavior.

We’re thrilled to see the endorsement for CFA’s education materials being communicated to the nutrition community in a peer-to-peer format via the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior’s journal. Providing science-based educational materials that are useful to dietitians has always been part of what we do, so we appreciate the good review from Ms. Fishman.

If you haven’t already done so, feel free to download the tool kit here. Otherwise, check out the published article in the journal here.

Recipes of the Month: Salad Dressings For Spring Brunch

April showers bring May flowers – and sometimes a mini panic attack that bathing suit season is almost here! How many times have you ordered or prepared a healthy salad and then reach for the Ranch, Vinaigrette or other bottled dressings that shoot the calories over the top so high you may as well have eaten a burger?!

Alas, we’ve come up with healthy salad dressings that actually add a serving of fruits, veggies or protein to your salad. By swapping in a pureed canned fruit, vegetable or bean in place of the oil traditionally found in dressings, you cut the calories and fat in half and add an extra serving of fruits and veggies to help you meet the daily recommended amounts. (It’s also a fun little way to add fruits and vegetables into your kids’ diets as they are fun for dipping in dressings/sauces; great for grilling and other toppings as well!)

Try one of our 11 “Dressed to the Nines” Salad Dressings to round out your Spring Fling or any old salad or meal.
