In honor of Registered Dietitian Day yesterday, Giant Food Stores, LLC of Carlisle, Pa. paid homage to its five on-staff dietitians.
"By providing customers the access to well-qualified professionals, our nutritionists are able to help them navigate through the marketplace and make healthy choices for themselves and their families," said Giant Food Stores v.p. advertising and marketing Denny Hopkins.
Giant's on-staff dietitians are Sylvia B. Emberger, corporate nutritionist at the company's headquarters; Lisa M. Coleman, and Mark E. Rifkin, in-store nutritionists at the Eldersburg, Pa. Martin's; Sylvia E. McDonald, in-store nutritionist at Giant Super Food Store in Camp Hill, Pa.; and Mary Ann Moylan, in-store nutritionist at the Willow Grove, Pa. Giant Super Food Store.
The nutritionists conduct individual consultations, lectures, workshops, grocery store tours, and hands-on demonstrations to answer shoppers' questions about healthy eating and lifestyles.
The American Dietetic Association Registered Dietitian Day created to raise awareness of registered dietitians as providers of food and nutrition services, and to recognize them for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.
