Beyond the Garden

Empowering Patients to Embrace Plant-Forward Eating

As clients look to make healthful dietary changes, many gravitate toward plant-forward eating patterns in an effort to improve health, reduce their environmental impact, or out of concern for animal welfare. In this webinar, we’ll address common challenges consumers encounter in making such changes, including meeting household food preferences and ensuring nutrient adequacy, in addition to concerns around accessibility and affordability.

Learning Objectives

Attendees will receive actionable advice for helping patients healthfully adopt plant-forward eating habits and discover how incorporating foods such as dairy – a rich source of complementary and often under-consumed nutrients – can facilitate.

Finally, we’ll go Beyond the Table to discuss consumer priorities related to sustainability. We’ll hear firsthand accounts of how Midwest dairy farmers are addressing these priorities by innovating to reduce food waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Join us to gain valuable insights and practical advice to help guide your patients and clients toward healthful, balanced, and sustainable diets.
