Harmons Dietitians Choice

Helping you make healthier (and easy) decisions

What is Dietitians Choice?
Dietitians Choice was created by Harmons' dietitians to help make shopping for the most nutritious foods simple and convenient. We understand that reading the nutrition labels of every food you choose is time consuming and often confusing, so we're doing the work for you! You can feel confident that foods identified with the "Dietitians Choice" shelf tag meet the stringent nutrition criteria set by our dietitians Jonnell, Jessica, Laura, and Kayla.

How are the nutrition criteria determined?
Our Harmons' dietitians look at each food category separately when creating the nutrition criteria. For example, the criteria for "Bread" will be different from "Yogurt" because these foods have different nutritional attributes. The criteria are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010, which are healthy eating guidelines based on the most recent scientific evidence. Using these guidelines, our dietitians choose Dietitians Choice criteria with the following nutrients in mind:

Foods and Nutrients to Increase

Foods and Nutrients to Decrease

Foods and Nutrients to Avoid

Whole Grains

Sodium

Trans Fat

Fruits and Vegetables

Saturated Fat

Hydrogenated Oils

Fiber

Added Sugar

Artificial Sweeteners

 

 

High Fructose Corn Syrup
