Healthy Food Choices Made Easy

What is Dietitians Choice?

Dietitians Choice is like having your own personal dietitian at your side -- helping you navigate the store aisles; making recommendations and endorsing healthy products.

Products marked with Dietitians Choice have our dietitians stamp of approval for nutritional value. Look for the Dietitians Choice label on products throughout the store, and you can be sure the product has been reviewed and approved by Harmons own staff of dietitians as good food that is good for you.

So take the guesswork out of shopping. Let us sift through the food labels while you spend your time cooking and enjoying your delicious culinary creations.

Watch for this label in your local Harmons for the best, healthiest food for you and your family.

Determining Nutrition Criteria

Healthy eating starts with understanding what you are putting into your body. Our dietitians can help you understand the nutritional differences between various foods and how they can affect you. They review each food category separately when determining nutrition criteria because foods from various food groups differ nutritionally. Criteria is based on the 2010 edition of Dietary Guidelines for Americans – healthy eating guidelines created using the most recent scientific evidence.

Using this criteria, our dietitians create Dietitians Choice items with the following nutrients in mind:

  • Increase

    • Whole Grains
    • Fruits & Vegetables
    • Fiber
  • Decrease

    • Sodium
    • Saturated Fat
    • Added Sugar
  • Avoid

    • Trans Fat
    • Hydrogenated Oils
    • Artificial Sweeteners
    • High Fructose Syrup
