Food as Medicine

The concept of “Food as Medicine” is based on connecting the science of food and nutrition to health. Making this connection in food retail can be highly effective with slight behavior change that can ultimately enhance shopping, cooking and overall eating patterns. Food as Medicine programs in the food retail environment have defined focus areas that connect food and nutrition to improved health:

  • Encouragement of health and well-being.
  • Management and treatment of disease.
  • Improvement of nutrition security.
  • Promotion of food safety.
