GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Regional superstore operator Meijer has expanded its Healthy Living nutrition outreach program with the addition of a third full-time registered dietitian, who will serve customers in the Illinois and Indiana regions.
"Most consumers make the majority of their dietary decisions in the grocery store," said Todd Anderson, Meijer group v.p. for the Illinois and Indiana region, in a statement. "So, it makes sense for us to provide food and nutrition resources where our customers need it most."
