Foundation Pre-FNCE® Nutrition Symposia: Discerning and Derailing Consumers’ Cycle of Food Shaming


As defined in the Academy’s Code of Ethics, all members must abide by a set of core values: customer focus, integrity, innovation, social responsibility, and diversity. Moreover, the Academy encourages inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) by striving to recognize, respect and include differences in ability, age, creed, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, size, and socioeconomic characteristics in the nutrition and dietetics profession.

To these ends, this session will showcase the first-ever comprehensive research study that authenticates the realities of the potential impacts of food shaming for multiple, diverse consumer audiences. The research will provide the backbone to help RDNs continue building more meaningful, open conversations on the topic and to hear from experts on how to craft messages that resonate with all consumers.

The session will conclude with elevating the importance of accessible nutrition, shining a light on the affordable and good nutrition found in packaged products in the center of the store. New research will be presented that showcases the nutritional value of center-store foods and how they stack up against perimeter foods, further empowering RDNs to effectively educate consumers on how to incorporate all foods into a healthy, nutritious diet.

This session will derail the walk of food shaming and help RDNs give consumers the green light to shop all aisles in the supermarket, convenience store, big box stores and recognize the nutrition found in all parts of retail food shopping sectors.
